I bought the book being a person who loves zoos and was expecting it to cover the materials, chemicals, theorys, and design/setup of the cage and what plants to use with what lighting but none of the above really appeared in the book a completely misleading title and poor purchase.

I bought this book expecting it to be focused on Terrarium construction, planting and care. Instead it was almost entirely about the animals you can put in them. Not at all useful considering I'm not making vivariums. Designs and plans provided in the book were okay but were short and had very few pictures. There are free resources online that are much better. They were also a little disorganized. Some times they had long lists of plants for the terrarium type, sometimes none. If you are looking for a book to help you choose a vivarium pet this book is very thorough. If you are looking for a book on terrariums it isn't worth it. Since its advertised as the latter I was very disappointed.

I got this book in hopes of finding detailed information about the actual construction and maintenace techniques for terrariums/vivariums. While this book does address those issues for a few pages, the bulk of the content deals with the various types of reptiles, amphibians, crustaceans, and insects that may be kept. If your are looking for a book that addresses the potential denizens of the terrarium specifically, this would make a very good reference - especially if you are still trying to decide what you want. However, I had to give it four stars because I found the title misleading.

I bought the book in hopes of finding out how to build a terrarium for a specific frog. Instead it quickly ran through a few different terrarium types and how to build them and then went on to describe all the many reptiles and amphibians you can own. I knew exactly the frog I wanted, I just needed to know a little bit more about their enviroment and what types of plants they like. Big disappointment!

For each setup, a lot of space devoted to different types of animals and each types general care. Would have liked to have more information on design ideas, construction tips, and maintenance of actual terrariums.
