I got this book along with receiving my new pair of green anoles and boy was I disappointed with the information! The title implies that this book is a "complete care guide", but that is far from the truth. There is no clear guidelines for exact temperatures, humidity or lighting. I was amazed at how they presented green anoles as a perfect "first pet" but then proceded to give little information for anything but an outdoor professional habitat inclosure. After reading this book I had no answers and only more puzzling questions.

Check out the section on Australian water dragons if you get this book. The photos are beautiful and the paper quality is great (glossy). Dick Bartlett is a good writer, having written not only several reptile manuals, but also many articles in Reptiles Magazine and the Vivarium. Please check out the Australian water dragons again. I have to find out where to get some because I want them...:-)
