A Guide to Buying, Caring for and Breeding Unusual Pets.
This book offers 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 increasingly people are choosing unusual pets. Especially since these pets, in many cases, offer low-maintenance, low-allergy, space-saving alternatives to traditional pets.
In this book, David Manning gives interesting and amazing facts, cautionary warnings and practical information about the most popular and frequently collected amphibians, reptiles and invertebrates. For each animal there is advice on housing your pet, maintaining a healthy environment for it, dietary needs and suitable food, handling, and common behaviour characteristics.
