Understanding and caring for your invertebrate. Invertebrates exist in bizarre, often colourful forms, and their behaviour can be fascinating to observe. Their popularity as pets is growing rapidly, but comprehensive information about the care of the different groups has been hard to find - up until now! This unique guide covers all the popular terrestrial invertebrates kept as pets, ranging from stick insects to tarantulas, and giant millipedes to giant land snails. Some of these species are ideal as childrens pets. Aside from extensive coverage of the invertebrates themselves, there is detailed information relating to their care and breeding, plus general guidance about starting out with members of each particular group. The whole publication is illustrated throughout with stunning colour photography, capturing the striking beauty of these creatures.
