Most kids are fascinated by exotic animals -- and some of those creatures can actually be kept as pets. Books in this brand-new and engaging series speak to boys and girls who would like to raise unusual pets -- lizards, snakes, insects, and even arachnids like spiders and scorpions. Young readers will find amazing facts on behavior characteristics, as well as practical information on housing, feeding, anatomy, and life cycles. Each Unusual Pets book features approximately 60 newly commissioned full-color photos. Pages are as attractive as they are fact-filled, with sidebars and quick-reference symbols accompanying the main text.

Kids learn to care for a variety of lizards, including iguanas, geckos, chameleons, basilisks, the blue-tongued skink, and many others.
