Alpha Books, 1998 - Pets - 296 pages

The average reptile owner has two or three reptile pets, not necessarily of the same species, and needs one book that will answer all their questions. What can you expect from a reptile as a pet? How do you set up a habitat for a desert snake or a rain forest frog? What should you feed these most finicky eaters? There are also tips on avoiding salmonella, advice about handling your pet and a section on what to do if you are bitten. The most comprehensive information on every aspect of the subject is presented in an easily-accessible, quick, fun format.
