Keeping Unusual Animals As Pets
by: Hewitt, Jef

This guide aims to provide readers with expert tips and advice on the care and welfare of unusual invertebrates, reptiles and insects. Details are given of 37 exotic creatures and how to provide the right environment, with proper food, water and light. From centipedes (don't handle them--they're poisonous; and don't try to keep more than one--they'll eat each other) to the handsome red tomato frog and the blue-tongued skink, Hewitt describes the living conditions and food required. Along with several species of frogs and five additional invertebrates, he includes a number of salamanders, lizards, snakes, and turtles. Hewitt's advice is sound, though a little sparse; however, he does emphasize the ethical and legal responsibilities involved in keeping unusual animals. The text is clear and simple, but not childish, which makes this book appropriate for adults as well as younger readers. Ages 12 & up. 128 pgs.
