Book Description

October 1997
The popularity of reptiles and amphibians as pets has increased rapidly throughout the world, with many advances in knowledge regarding the care and breeding in captivity of these species. The Reptile and Amphibian Problem Solver gives specific information on the care of more than 100 species, including lizards, snakes, turtles, tortoises, frogs, toads, newts, and salamanders. The authors also provide clear and effective solutions to more than 450 of the most common problems.

Robert and Valerie Davies share a combined experience of 70 years keeping and breeding reptiles and amphibians. Both are Fellows of the Zoological Society of London and have advised and assisted in five television films, written numerous articles, and taught and lectured around the world.

4.0 out of 5 stars Informative and authoritative Nov. 18 2000
By Alex
Format:Hardcover
This professional-looking hardcover is fairly small and not at all intimidating in appearance. Instead, the Reptile and Amphibian Problem Solver is a practical and readable reference for the beginner as well as an expert. A decent amount of space is allocated to selecting vivaria and substrates, creating an ambient atmosphere, and heating/lighting (although more information would be appreciated on the former, especially on the subject of keeping the vivarium cool, which is a constant challenge in the warmer climes). Reptile and amphibian care is listed separately. The entries are organized according to classification, similar species listed in a single group. Each entry is accompinied with brilliant photography, a Q&A section, and useful (although cluttered) rubrics concerning minimum vivarium dimensions, appropriate diets, temperature ranges, etc. Some entries also have breeding data rubrics. Common as well as fairly exotic species are covered (the book keeps an appropriately cautious tone when describing the exotics, which are likely to be captured in the wilderness and thus sometimes unsuitable for keeping). As an endorsement, I must say that after reading the Problem Solver I was confident enough to go and buy my first reptile.

I work in a large pet store and every day we have questions on reptiles and amphibians. Whenever I cannot answer the question, I go get this book from the shelf. Most of the time I find an answer in it. I find answers to almost Every question from "what should this animal eat" to "Help my animal is sick!" If you are a new reptile owner or just have questions, get this book.
