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)
