About this title

Synopsis:

Keeping iguanas, frogs, insects and other invertebrates in a glass world is a popular pursuit.

This practical, fully illustrated guide has everything the enthusiast needs to know, with a focus on beginners. A one-stop reference for those starting out with a terrarium or vivarium, it covers the entire spectrum of suitable animals, from invertebratesto large snakes and lizards. David Alderton explains how to design setups that re-create natural habitats, as well as more clinical environments for closely monitoring difficult or delicate species. A brief account of some of the more suitable vivarium plants and their requirements is also included.

The book is divided into three main sections -- Reptiles, Amphibians and Invertebrates -- with extensive cross-referencing between them. There are detailed presentations on all key areas:

  • Basic biology
  • Housing
  • Equipment
  • Controlling the environment
  • Furnishings: clinical and naturalistic
  • Checklist of plants and methods of planting
  • Food and feeding
  • Breeding
  • Health.

A comprehensive directory of species provides specific information on breeds suitable for beginners. This easy-to-use, illustrated volume presents all the most up-to-date information in a single volume, giving the enthusiast a complete reference.
