Turtles and Tortoises : Caring for Them, Feeding Them, Understanding Them
by Hartmut Wilke, M. Heimter
Book Description:
Titles in the Family Pet Series offer basic information to families and children who have little or no experience with pets. The books are easy to read and understand, yet are filled with practical advice and answers to questions that both inexperienced pet owners and kids are certain to ask. Turtles and Tortoises advises on the care of these interesting animals and tells how to distinguish one from the other. Freshwater tortoises have high and more rounded shell shapes than pet freshwater turtles, and unlike turtles, they do not swim. The author advises on the best places to obtain turtles and tortoises, what to feed them, how to set up a minipond, how to understand the animal?s body language, and even how to breed these creatures. There are tips on dealing with problems, including skin shedding, and the tendency of some animals to bite one another when kept as pairs. Here is everything that beginning pet owners need to know about the care of these fascinating reptiles. Full-color photos and attractive sidebars on nearly every page.
