Another installment in the wildly popular Idiot s Guide series. Very comprehensive information on every aspect of turtle care is presented in an easily accessible, quick, fun format, with care tips, pitfalls and interesting trivia bits throughout. Turtles and tortoises are the most popular reptile pets and differ greatly from other reptiles in their needs, yet there is very little available that is devoted exclusively to them. Liz Palika shares her home with a variety of animals, including tortoises, iguanas, dogs and cats. She has written several books on animal care and training, including The Consumer s Guide to Feeding... series, and the award-winning Australian Shepherd: Champion of Versatility.
