Media reviews

'The narratives are well written and sufficiently user-friendly to be read by almost anyone who raises reptiles. The book will be particularly useful for vertebrate zoologists, veterinarians, reptile breeders, and zoo keepers.' Choice 'This book is a welcome addition to the steadily increasing library of herpetological literature ... an impressive international group of contributors are to be found within.' The Veterinary Record 'The editors are acknowledged experts in this field, and a great deal of care has gone into the production of this book, involving 17 contributors in addition to the editors.' CAB International, Veterinary Bulletin 'This book is an interesting early examination of the animal welfare aspects of working with reptiles in captivity and also in nature.' The Herpetological Journal 'To review such a packed volume is difficult indeed, in order to give the correct credence to its excellence ... a most important step forward in the cataloguing of existing knowledge on the subject ... essential reading for all workers in the field ...'
