9780004133249: Exotic Pet Handbook

The first title in an exciting new series of highly illustrated family pet guides, the Collins Exotic Pet Handbook aims to offer guidance and practical advice to parents and children when choosing a more unusual family pet.

The term ‘exotic’ traditionally refers to those creatures unfamiliar to the general pet-keeping public but gradually more and more people are
choosing unusual pets. Especially since these pets in many cases offer low maintenance, low allergy, space-saving alternatives to traditional pets.

All the animals included in the book are widely available from captive bred stocks in the UK, Europe and the USA. They are divided into four sections –Amphibians, Reptiles I (Lizards & Tortoises), Reptiles II (Snakes) and Invertebrates.

In the Collins Exotic Pet Handbook, David Manning gives interesting and amazing facts, cautionary warnings and practical information about the
most popular and often collected amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates. For each animal there is advice on housing your pet and maintaining a healthy environment for it, dietary needs and suitable food, handling and common behaviour characteristics.

With more than 120 specially commissioned colour photographs, sound practical advice and fascinating hints and tips the Collins Exotic Pet Handbook is invaluable for all owners and prospective buyers of more unusual pets.
