ECO Chameleons in Captivity

Chameleons are the exotic dragons of herpetoculture. They fascinate us with their methodical behaviors and unusual physical attributes. Beyond their unusual physicality and their curious nature, a chameleon in captivity has specific husbandry needs that require diligence and understanding for long-term success and a natural lifespan. Their needs aren't difficult, but they are very necessary. Chameleons will not thrive long with improper husbandry. Of course, knowledge is the key. With every keeper out there, a new variation on a theory is available. Many theories work, some don't. This book by Connie Dorval of Arboreal Exotics is meant to discuss information that has worked very successfully in terms of keeping and breeding chameleons in captivity for many years. 71 full-color photographs. 70 pp. Softcover

ECO Russian Tortoises in Captivity

The tortoises of the Mediterranean and Eurasia include five groups: Greek tortoises, Hermanns tortoises, Marginated tortoises, Egyptian tortoises, and Russian tortoises.

This book will discuss the captive care and breeding of Russian tortoises, but the care of most of the Mediterranean species is very similar.

Russian tortoises are quite personable, have a long history in the pet trade, and have been exported to the United States, Europe, and Asia for many years. In fact, Russian tortoises continue to be among the most common species imported into the United States. Unlike African Spurred tortoises and Leopard tortoises, which grow large, Russian tortoises are relatively small and are much easier to feed and care for than their larger cousins.

In this new book, expert tortoise breeder Jerry Fife presents insights into the captive care and breeding of Russian tortoises, with a look at the other species of Mediterranean tortoises. This book contains detailed information on indoor and outdoor enclosures, proper feeding and nutrition, breeding, egg incubation, care of young tortoises, and health information for all levels of keepers.

ECO The Complete Children's Python

The Compete Children's Python by Dr. Justin Julander, Nick Mutton and Peter Birch. Published in 2013 by Eco. Over 250 pp. Hardcover with dust jacket. The genus Antaresia, a group commonly referred to as the Children's pythons can be found across the continent of Australia and a small portion of neighboring New Guinea. The group, comprised of the Children's python (Antaresia childreni), spotted python (A. maculosa), pygmy python (A. perthensis) and the Stimson's python (A. stimsoni), contains the smallest pythons in the world. Despite their small size, these snakes are ideally suited to life in the often-harsh climates of their native Australia. These two factors- sze and durability- have made this group popular among python keepers for many years. THE COMPLETE CHILDREN'S PYTHON is dedicated to all aspects of this amazing group of snakes with particular emphasis on natural history, biology, and reproduction. The authors have beautifully illustrated the immense diversity and natural beauty contained within wild populations of these pythons. This group has previously been underrepresented in herpetocultural literature despite being one of the world's most successful and widespread python genera.
