Eat This Bug was a huge disappointment. It's main fault is that it contains very little detailed information. There are some nice pictures in this book, a list of insects that are suitable for feeding reptiles and amphibians and not much else. There is no discussion of reptile and amphibian nutrition, little information on how to care for your insects once you get them home, little or no information on culturing your own insects, and no information about the suitability of different insects as food for different reptiles and amphibians. The book is so simplistic, it seems to be written for children. It was a big waste of my time and money.

At $9.95 I thought this book was way overpriced. It is 8.5 x 5.5 inches, a paperback with stapled spine. Only 58 pages of content, and each of those is half printed with text. Black and white illustrations are few and of low quality. Information is only rudimentary, but accurate. I would recommend those interested in this topic to look anywhere else!

This book is a simple guide to finding and keeping live foods for herp pets. A good source of info about suppliers of hard to find items in the appendix. If you want to raise your own insects, this is a good place to start.

I found this book listed among recommend books on the Sithsonian Natural History Museum site. There are very few books on reptile care recommended by the Sithsonian. This was the only one dealing with live foods.

It is a small book, only 62 pages. I would like to see an expanded version. I was unable to find the information I needed anywhere else. For anyone raising invertebrates and insects for feeding pets, this book will be very useful.
