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.
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).
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.
All information available in on-line care sheets but nice to have it in a well bound book.

A little basic. It was for my 10yo daughter and she said she knew most of the stuff in it. So I would suggest it was ok for a complete beginner but not someone who has already done... Read morePublished 8 months ago by NikTheGeek
