  • DESCRIPTION

    Popular Tortoises   By Philippe de Vosjoli.  70 Pages. ©1996.

    Tortoises are among the most endangered families of reptiles; thus choosing one for a pet carries a large amount of responsibility.  Use this comprehensive manual to guide you through the various life stages of a tortoise so you may give your pet a long a healthy life.  Everything you need to know from how to select the right tortoise – including personality differences between species and how to determine the sex of your tortoise – to housing information is featured in this book.  

    Other topics discussed in this revised version are: food and water requirements; proper hibernation and quarantine techniques; and common diseases, disorders and treatments.  Updated photos and information on a variety of popular tortoises, such as leopard, African spurred, Russian, pancake, red- and yellow-footed, and Burmese brown, are also included.
