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.

Chimaira Basics - Emerald Monitors

Softcover, 94 pages, 116 colour and 2 black-and-white photos, 2 maps and 1 table. In recent years monitor lizards have become ever more popular as terrarium animals. The reasons for this development include the increasing availability of useful information on their proper husbandry on the one hand and the widening range of advanced technological equipment that makes keeping them much easier and more reliable on the other. Availability of food animals has also expanded to such a degree that no keeper should have any problems in supplying their lizards with a varied and healthy diet. Dietary deficiency syndromes should therefore be a thing of the past. With captive bred monitors being more freely available today, obtaining healthy founder stock has become much easier. All these factors added up have made it possible that a keeper interested in keeping a certain monitor lizard species will in most instances find what he is looking for sooner or later. With their small adult size, monitor lizards of the subgenusEuprepiosaurusare particularly recommendable as terrarium animals, as they are more easily kept in sizeable enclosures in captivity. All species of the Emerald Monitor group are impressive, yet comparatively small lizards that can be kept in fairly normal indoor terraria. With their interesting appearance, their attractive colour patterns and their particular demands as to their terrarium, this group takes a special place amongst the representatives of the subgenus Euprepiosaurus.
