3.0 out of 5 stars unfortunately lacking in info. April 17 2000
Format:Paperback
This had the potential to be a wonderful book, but it is lacking in the information that you would expect to get in the books of this series. The diseases and disorders section is esentially non-existant and the specific care of the different species is far too generalized and totally lacks detail. It is a very good book for beginners or those looking for overviews of the major species and their care, but that is about it. Still waiting for the Tortoise Manual - which is long overdue.

I have used this book extensively to help me care for several species of tortoises, Leopards, Sulcatas, Redfoot and Yellowfoots. The content is highly accurate and every tortoise keeper should use this book as his "bible" of care specs.

5.0 out of 5 stars A bargain and a fine little book April 2 1998
Format:Paperback
The author's wide knowledge of herpetology and many guides have saved countless thousands of reptile and amphibian lives. This book adds to that humane record.
