If not, buy Iguanas for Dummies and James Hatfields Green Iguana book. I have all 3 plus "Understanding Reptile Parasites" by Roger J. Klingenberg, which is unfortunately not available from Amazon.
Biology: Covers all concerning issues in the 24-cycle-day of the living animals and captive too.
Nutricional: Covers all concerning food in the wild, food in captivity. Contains a wide spectrum food analysis, for captive sources.
Hasbundry: Covers all about terrarium living-related (furnishing, temperatures, humidity, substrates, disinfections etc etc).
Diseases and disorders: All known signs of diseases & diagnoses, and signs of disorders and related. Covers also the case of acariasis (important in captive reptiles).
Medicinary: Covers all cases for doses, medicines, alternative medicinary ect ect.
I would say that it isn't for the new keeper. It is for the person who is already familiar with medicinary, pathology and diseases.
This book is just the "next step" to keeping knowledge of Green Iguanas.
