HASH(0xa58268ac) out of 5 stars Highly technical, but very good, book May 17 2005
By Otto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is for the advanced Iguana owner, or someone who wants to become advanced. Basically this book is a series of scientific studies collected in one book, along with information on diagnosing various Iguana diseases and injury. There are color plates showing how to operate on Iguanas for vets. Basically this is a vet textbook, but anyone with a slight background in anatomy, or a pocket medical dictionary, should be able to read this book easily and find it informative. If you want to feel a bit more empowered and be able to discuss Ig problems with your vet, this is a good book.

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.

HASH(0xa5798600) out of 5 stars Review 02.23.2012 Feb. 23 2012
By Konstantinidis Konstantinos - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book covers everything about biology, nutricional needs and hasbundry of Green Iguana.

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.
