Book Description

#1 Best Seller in Animals > Reptiles & Amphibians within 3 weeks of launch.

Aquarium, underwater, turtle and tortoise lover David Chipperfield has listened to the fans who were clamoring for him to add a turtle book to his previously written books on aquariums. Here is his step-by-step compendium so you can go from a complete beginner to a turtle authority in no time

We asked David why people should read this book and he told us:

“There are loads of things you can get wrong when looking after turtles but if you know the tips and tricks you can make your relationship fun, inexpensive and hopefully not one that turns you into an accidental turtle killer (it’s easier than you might think if you don’t understand what not to do).”

If you are looking to get a turtle soon, want to know more about them or would just like some expert tips on what you can do with your current turtle then How to Care For your Pet Turtle Like an Expert could well be the place for you.

Here are a few of the things you will learn when you read How to Care For your Pet Turtle Like an Expert

• How to care for your turtle from hatchling size up
• The aquarium plants that your turtles can eat (You will learn both the common name and scientific name so you can always find them)
• How to supply your little friend with a satisfying and healthy diet
• The different things that are harmful to your pet turtle, from food to some you might not expect
• You will get the common myths about turtles debunked
• How to decide whether a turtle or tortoise is right for you
• The best ways to choose between a turtle and a tortoise
• Indepth information on turtle species including a price guide (David also breaks them down to Cheap / Mid Range/ Expensive so you can see at a glance)
• The lists you will need of turtle ownership laws for Great Britain, Canada, Australia, USA (including links to government websites)
• Detail on turtle parasites and their treatments - or if you should send your pet turtle to the vet
• Recommended turtle breeds for beginners (including the reasons why those specific breeds are recommended)
• List of toxic plants that can harm or kill your pet turtle
• How to prevent your turtle transmitting harmful bacteria to you and your children
• How to select just the right turtle or tortoise
• How to setup an indoor or outdoor home for your turtle or tortoise
• How to maintain a turtle tank easily so that it is great for your turtle without taking up too much of your time
• What other animals are compatible with your turtle and which are not
• How to avoid common turtle ailments and problems and identifying the warning signs that can help save your turtle before it is too late
• Species specifics including: recommended setup, size, cost, experience level, diet and common health problems
• How to understand your turtle’s or tortoise’s special needs

As you can see, this is the true turtle lover’s guide to acquiring, keeping and loving your pet turtle.

The book also includes a special ‘Who’s Who’ of turtles and tortoises—a complete guide to dozens of species, where they’re from, what they’re like, and how they are as pets.

When we asked him for a few final words, David told us to tell you:

“To all those turtle owners (and owner to be’s), I hope you enjoy the hours and hours of fun, laughs, challenges and entertainment that come with owning and loving a pet turtle!”

So, if you are considering a pet turtle or tortoise (or already own one and just want a few extra time (and money) saving tricks) then consider reading How to Care for Your Pet Turtle Like an Expert.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thorough and Informational February 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It's obvious that David Chipperfield is indeed a turtle master. This book is thoughtfully written with clear and thorough information. Sometimes when I buy a kindle book I feel a bit ripped off - like the writer doesn't really know his stuff. Not here.

This book has everything I need to make a decision about what kind of turtle to buy, how to set up the habitat, how to feed and care for the turtle, and identifying and dealing with any issues the turtle has. It's a complete guide, everything I need in a well-organized and well written format.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent read! February 20, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is not only an excellent reference guide for anyone interested in turtles, but it's a very interesting read. I always wondered why the small turtles I had as a child died - and now I know! The author answers common questions and goes into detailed information about everything you should know before and after getting a turtle. If you want to get rid of pests in your garden, this might be a pet for you!

Very nicely formatted with LOTS of pictures. Also included is a list, with pictures, of turtles that are available to purchase with a rating by the author to which are good and those not advised as pets. I would definitely purchase another book by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars enjoyable read, helpful info January 16, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
You can tell by reading the opening few pages of a book if the author is truly passionate about the subject and this book definitely falls into this category. Unlike a few of the other books out there, this book reviews a number of affordable and attainable turtles and brackets them into beginner or expert categories which is helpful when you are just starting out. It also has great info on setting up a terrarium and both indoor and outdoor care.

Not much fluff in this book. Just good info and tips. Overall a good guide, thank you.

....should thank David Chipperfield. I was pretty confused about the turtle basis until I got this book. The price may have been low, but the book (and the info it contains) is worth so much more!
