Format: Paperback
This book is the most useful on the market for iguana owners both new and experienced. It presents information that is accurate, precise and complete. As a veterinarian board certified in nutrition and internal medicine, who has published on the growth of iguanas and on dietary protein and kidney function in mammals, I can vouch that the presentation of protein nutrition is up-to-date and correct (see Journal of Nutrition, 1998, and elsewhere). I agree with de Vosjoli's recommendations on diet and feeding. This book is a must read for all owners of the green iguana.

Format: Paperback
The Green Iguana Manual by Philippe De Vosjoli is often recommended by pet owners and veterinarians. However, the nutritional information is out of date. Animal protein in any amount is no longer recommended in iguana diets, including diets for juveniles. Following this manual for nutrition information could mean your iguana ends up with kidney and/or liver failure and a shortened lifespan. Please see the 1996 edition of Reptile Medicine and Surgery for iguana diet information.

HASH(0xa43072a0) out of 5 stars THIS BOOKS INFORMATION CAN HARM YOUR IGUANA! June 22 2005
A Kid's Review - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I do not recomend this book to any iguana owner. This book is by far the worst iguana book I have seen yet. The nutrition section is out of date. It says to feed your iguana meat!?!, and commercial iguana foods! Iguanas are strict herbivores and with this information, it can cause kidney failure! Im only 13 and i know better than to listen to this book, I honestly think you should turn to Green iguana, the ultimate owners manual, by James W. Hatfield for better results.

With all do respect

HASH(0xa4307be8) out of 5 stars A good resource for someone who had never had an Iguana. March 2 2015
By VentuDebe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Got this book for a friend who rescued a Green Iguana, from the middle of a street! It was a good resource, and helped her to work with the Iguana. She did have an ID on her, the prior owner was contacted and Rosie had a history of running away from home, and hard to keep. My friend took her to a vet, build an Iguana cage for her, and then found a new home with an owner who had other Iguanas. The book was a good resource for someone who had never had an Iguana.
