    5.0 out of 5 stars Good book for beginners... Dec 3 1999
    Format:Paperback
    This book was helpful when I decided to keep a newt because I was able to find out what I could feed it. It did not give information about a few of the species pictured in the book, but for a beginner there is information about feeding and housing that is useful.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptionally good book on Salamanders and Newts Jan. 9 2010
    By DJ - Published on Amazon.com
    Format:Paperback
    "Newts and Salamanders" has plenty of worthwhile information from a true expert, plus many excellent photographs and great drawings. This book is the way it should be done. I have read many animal care books over the years and this one is right on the mark. This book confirmed that my two Tiger Salamanders are getting proper care but I also picked up a few hints regarding feeding and cage decoration that will make it even better for them.
    I want to emphasize the quality of this book, in the writing, the artistic choice of photographs, and the drawings sprinkled throughout the book. The book actually FEELS good and uses high quality paper. This book is guaranteed a permanent spot on my shelf of pet care books.

    Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
    This is a small basic identification book with informative text and nice, clear photo illustrations of our more common salamanders. I needed pictures of a particular salamander for a painting I'm working in and this book had just what I needed. It us a good basic, beginners guide not overwhelming but informative.
