Terrarium owners will find profiles of reptiles, amphibians, and even scorpions, spiders and insects. Frogs, lizards, snakes, turtles-virtually all creatures suitable for the terrarium are shown in more than 200 striking color photos. Readers will also find information on setting up and maintaining a terrarium. These pocket-sized handbooks are handsome and practical quick-reference sources for pet owners, pet fanciers, and aquarium and terrarium hobbyists. Books feature brief descriptive profiles of their subject animals, each profile consisting of a color photo, the animal's place of origin, its basic housing and feeding needs, and its physical traits and temperament. In addition to the profiles, each Compass Guide also contains general information on animal species and their families.
