5.0 out of 5 stars Great resource for the new turtle owner July 20 2003
By Kala
When I got my turtle, Tim, I didn't know a thing about turtles - so I got this book as well as did a ton of research online. This book has TONS of good information (and pictures) about how to care for and house turtles. My turtle is several years old now, and is very happy and healthy. I recommend this to anyone who is looking to get a pet turtle. The reality of turtle-keeping is that it is a LOT of work. Turtles are dirty, and even with high powered filters their tanks need constant cleaning. I didn't know what I was getting in to, but it's worth the effort! Turtles are wonderful pets, and this book will give you all the basic information you need to know.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book with general information Jan. 9 2002
This is a great book to get you started in the hobby. This book is loaded with valuable information in an easy to read format with loads of pictures and examples. The basics are covered as well as a few of the more in depth topics. The chapters on breeding and hybernating are a little confusing and more information and ideas could have been added. The differences in the requirments needed by different species could have been covered also. This is a general care book. Nothing to fancy. If you want specifics buy a book on the species you are interested in.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great book May 3 2001
By A Customer
This book is the first thing a potential turtle owner should buy before getting a turtle. It is inexpensive and loaded with the right information regarding the care of turtles, both aquatic and terrestrial species. The best part of the book is the section about which turtles make good pets for a first time owner and which turtles don't.

By A Customer
Though inexpensive, this book provides a wealth of excellent information. It is the most used book in my extensive collection of turtle identification and care books. All turtle owners, beginners and experienced alike, should have this book.
