This is the second edition of a short guide to choosing and caring for pet turtles and tortoises. There is background information on the lifestyle of the tortoise family in the wild, to help pet owners understand chelonian needs, especially their housing and feeding needs. There are also accounts of different species. This is an especially good book for children, because it's so clearly written and well set out. It is good value for money, though the 'For Dummies' general guide offers more information. Though this book gives you a good overview of turtles and tortoises, it is also worth supplementing this general guide with a more specific guide to the type of tortoise or turtle you own or plan to buy.
