Philippe De Vosjoli is widely regarded as one of the world's leading herpetologists.
The Leopard Gecko Manual should be every prospective leo keepers first stop before the pet store. It serves to give a great insight into this fascinating creature and inform newcomers to reptiles of some of the most important factors in creating a healthy environment for a Leopard Gecko.
This book is great as a reference for the more experienced keepers also, including chapters on breeding, rearing youngsters, gecko illnesses and more.
I recommend this publication wholeheartedly, it's had pride of place on my bookshelf for years.

very good bok, applied a bit more science than the other books i have checked out, (im still a prospective gecko owner), had a great deal on breeding and rearing, and a good section on diseases, which ive been told is not always included (in as much depth), it included a section on the similar species the african fat tailed gecko, has a summerised scientific paper at the end, good book and interestin read, i now feel that i have as much info on geckos as i need

Having inherited a Leopard Gecko from an unwilling owner, before it arrived I thought it best to find out how to look after it ! This book covers everything you need to know, as a first time owner, about these interesting little creatures. They are just about the easiest reptile to keep, and they have character, are attractive and can become very tame. This book definitely whets the appetite for further expansion and covers all the necessaries.

I have a few books on Leopard Geckos now (I believe in trying alterantive views to get all sides of the story), and this is the best (and cheap too).

Very informative book for anyone considering having a Leopard Gecko as a pet, it covers everything from basic health care to housing to feeding and how to spot if your Gecko is ill (as they are very good at hiding symptoms). I would certainly recommend reading this beforehand to ensure you look after the lizard properly.

i've seen books on leopard geckos but this one takes the cake! this not only has up to date information and is from one of the top and most well known reptile authors, but also has parts that the other books just don't have. it has many colour photos of some of the most popular colour mutations of not only leopard geckos, but of one of its cousins, also a popular pet, the african fat-tailed gecko. this book also includes some studies done on the leopard gecko and some short introductions to some of its other close relatives fron around the world. if you have leopard geckos, have had them for years, or are planning on getting some, this is a must have! it is worth every penny!

This book was recommended by friends and forums.

Before purchasing my leopard geckos i joined forums and read lots of information on the internet.

After reading this book i am surprised it has been given such praise. Some of the information is against everything i have read and been told by others.

In the book it tells you things like cleaning feces every 2 weeks and offering clean water 2-3 times a week.

As everyone knows hygene is very important for any pet and clean water should be given every day. Feces should be removed as soon as they are seen in the vivarium not left to breed bacteria and other germs. Dont forget that vivariums are kept hotter than room temperatures so germs can breed faster.

It also suggests sand as a substrate. Whether you believe sand causes impaction or not is it really worth the risk to your lizard? There are other safer alternatives that are cheap and easy to clean.

I also think the temperatures the book suggests are a little on the cold side.

Some of the information is helpful but overall the book left me with a bad taste in my mouth. Some of the basic rules of keeping pets, whether they be reptiles, cats, dogs etc all have basic hygene and care requirements that i think the book misinforms people on.

ideal for first time leopard gecko keeper. as with most manuals lots of photographs padding?
All information available in on-line care sheets but nice to have it in a well bound book.
