Researching info for a new pet. July 10 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am currently setting up a tank for a prospective new pet...a gecko! I bought this book and 3 others for my Kindle so I could research my new pets needs before it ever enters my house. This book has good information and I am sure I will be referring to it often in the coming days.
