Editorial Reviews

Review

This book is recommended if you are considering getting a gecko for a pet or if you just want to know more about the ecology and behavior of the 1,400 or so living species of these peculiar lizards.

(Whit Gibbons Aiken Standard)

[This book] successfully broadens our outlook and appreciation of these fascinating creatures.

(Aliza Gecko Time)

Anyone who owns a gecko, has seen them in the wild, or has wondered about them will appreciate this gem of a book.

(Northeastern Naturalist)

All you ever wanted to know about geckos is here in a nice, readable format.

(Robert E. Hoopes Wildlife Activist)

Geckos may very well be the most recognizable lizards, and their diversity is astounding across their near-global distribution. Geckos: The Animal Answer Guide therefore provides a general audience with a much-needed encyclopedia where they can get an answer to nearly any question they may have about gecko biology. There is no authority better suited than Aaron Bauer to compile a gecko book at any academic level, and he does a shining example here of making his astounding knowledge of geckos accessible to general readers.

(Matthew K. Fujita Quarterly Review of Biology)

This book answers all the questions I've ever had about these interesting creatures. It's not a book about keeping geckos, but rather, it's about them. It gives a great history, thereby giving the reader a better understanding into their behavior and the environment from which they come from. I'm a gecko enthusiast and have really enjoyed this book.

Need to take some time to plug Dr. Bauer's book. After reading it, I'd have to say it's the essential book for someone just starting out with geckos. That being said, as a long-time breeder I find a lot of great information on lesser-known species and the species appendix (up to date as of Nov. 2012) is a heck of a resource.

This is exactly what we need in preparation for the arrival of the gecko exhibit here at the Museum of The Rockies. All of our docents will benefit from this book and our visitors will learn more from them.
