This handsomely illustrated book presents a wealth of information on the purchase, housing, and general care of tortoises and box turtles.

Advice and instruction covers purchase, equipment, general care and maintenance, and much more.

2.0 out of 5 stars Some good and some very bad information. June 16 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book is good as a very basic introduction to Box Turtles and Tortoises. The pictures are good and some of the advice on certain species is worth while.
However, there is some very bad information included. As anexample, increasing the humidity for a Star Tortoise. This advice will secure large vet bills for you from the respiratory issues your Star will certainly develop. Another is keepng your tortoise in a glass aquarium or glass sided enclosure.
I doubt the auther has any real-life experience with many of the tortoise species he mentions in this book. If he did, most will be quite ill or no longer with us.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for beginner May 15 2002
Format:Paperback
This book is really good for beginner. The high quality picture significantly pushing me to own a tortoise.
Clear and straightforward presentation for easy understand, although your are very beginner, you can successfully get the basic knowledge.
However, you cannot find detail information in this book because it gives general information only. Actually, if you already feed your tortoise more than half year, then this book is not suitable to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars This inexpensive book is informative and enjoyable. March 30 2000
Format:Paperback
An illustration is worth a thousand words and the combination of pictures, illustrations and practical knowledge makes this an excellent book for both the new pet owner and serious hobbyists.
I recommend books to new pet owners on a regular basis at our web site. Hartmut Wilke's books are amoung our favorite suggested references for general care. This book is no exception.

5.0 out of 5 stars A turtle book apparently by a turtle enthusiast Nov. 28 2001
Format:Paperback
I've read a lot of turtle care books, and this is one of my faves! It's very colorful and entertaining. The author knows his subject and is passionate about it. The guide to reading a turtle's body language was really unique. It was like someone else finally realized there was so much more to keeping turtles as pets. :)
