It is a useful source of info for tort lovers. March 31 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Easy to read and lots of practical information based on author's vast experiences. As a beginner, I truly found it resourceful and useful. If you love to read a how-to book, it is the one you're looking for. But if you love fancy photos, 4-color pictures for reference purpose, etc. it's not what you need. Liz, it'd be very much better and will be perfect if you could possibly include more 4-color pictures of famous tortoises and turtles.

A good book for beginners July 22 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent guide for new pet owners. It gives a good overview of various species and general care and maintenance. But I stress the word "overview",as more detailed info on, say, a given species is beyond the scope of this book. A future edition would benefit from color photographs, more information on caring for ill pets, and caring for young/hatchlings. For a beginners manual, however, this book is quite good.

The Best book on tortoises July 6 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
This book should be the first and last book you read about tortoises she tells you about getting started breeding cauntions how to make their home. She tells everything you want to learn about a certain species. It's the best tortoise book I ever read and I have read 25 books about tortoises and this is the best one.

Great advice for the keeper of a happy & healthy turtle March 19 2000
By "coldethyl2" - Published on
Format: Paperback
There should be more spell-it-out for the beginner books like this on the subject. Turtles are very difficult to care for properly and this book is full of truths on the matter. Concise and thorough - a necessity for the rookie or pro turtle keeper.
