This is a great addition to The Ultimate Iguana Manual. It gives you factual information and the importance of caring for these beautiful reptiles for the long haul. They don't stay small for long and require special diets, huge caging, high humidity, soaking, nail trimming, the right UVA/UVB lighting, thermal zoned temps and much more. I recommend someone get Iguana Handbook, read it, re-read it and then get The Ultimate Iguana Manual and read it. Your learned knowledge through both resources will save your Iguana's life!

As I read through "The Iguana Handbook", I was sorely disappointed, but not because the book was bad. In fact, the book was so detailed and accurate that it made me reconsider getting a baby iggy until I could house it in its adult form. Too many people get an iguana without thinking about what the future holds, and what needs to be done for one. I am happy to announce that this book will help to impart some of the knowledge necessary to make an iguana a happy and thriving member of your family.
Richard D. and Patricia Pope Bartlett are the consummate author team when it comes to herpetology and they show it well as they painstakingly illustrate the life and needs of a properly-cared-for Green Iguana (and some of its confamiliars). With their assistance, it is no longer necessary for captive iggies to suffer from Metabolic Bone Disease and other such ailments inflicted upon them by poor diet. They also tell how to build a lovely cage, take care of an iggy out-of-doors, house one with other lacertilians, breed them and many other useful tidbits.

I got this book as a guide and research source for students in my Montessori classroom. I needed it less for types of iguanas and more for care (I assumed this would be more pet-care oriented than it was).

However, the students adore the book, and adore the classroom pets we've recently acquired, and I will likely use resources such as The Green Ig Society (website) to help support and troubleshoot.

The book was for my grandson who had purchased an Iguana, He was very pleased with it because is so helpful with questions (and problems) he has encountered in caring for his new pet. This was an excellent buy.

The delivery of this book came in an okay condition. It looked used and it was dented, folded It also came a little ripped; like if a child had it before me. The info it has is great with the food and temp but it needs to be updated and it is and old book . i would not recommend this book , unless it was my last choice.

This was the better of the two it has instructions for building your own custom cage even gives details on size of reptile and size of cage needed. Bingo

Bought this book to learn about iguanas. It teaches a lot of information about owning and raising one.

Finally, a good book with all true information. If you want an iguana book this is one of the few to get. Easy to read and is written by experienced iguana owners. I highly recommend it.
