4.0 out of 5 stars Design and Maintenance of Desert Vivaria 19 Mar. 2000
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Very helpful book for setting up an appropriately designed habitat for your desert reptile. A lot of thought and experience went into this book, and it could save you from making mistakes both costly to your pocketbook or your pet's health. Not much info on individual species care. For that, see Lizard Keepers' Handbook.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very Disappointing 27 Feb. 2003
By leigh - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Usually books by De Vosjoli are very helpful. This is not one of them. The subject matter does not cover designing the actual cage, something that is essential to a vivarium, but rather gives few resources on where to buy cages. There are some sections that are rather useless as well, including necessary items for a vivarium store. I found this section to be a waste of space, besides not having enough information for one who is actually considering opening a store.
The biggest turn-off for me was that the author showed how egotistical he is through his writing on every page. He seemed to discourage readers, and I felt that he thought one would not be able to create a home for their cold-blooded friend.
I do not think that this is a resource that one needs to own. If you are looking for ideas, flip through the book at a local bookstore but it is neither necessary nor helpful in designing your own vivarium.
