this is a very complete book with a lot an useful information to anyone that wants to keep frogs

Great pictures and detailed information

This book's excellent pictures and detailed information on the species of tree frogs found in the pet trade is what caught my eye. As a beginner I wanted something that would not lump tree frogs into a few basic groups since I know they exist in many diverse enviroments-from my own back yard the USA, to the tropics. I found the housing and feeding information to be complete and there were many pictures of terrariums and descriptions of some interesting habitat features, such as the "rain bar". I didn't know some tree frogs did not need high humidty and the author was very clear on which tree frogs were from more arid enviroments and did not need a lot of misting. The health section seemed short and obviously the author was trying to point out that illnesses were to be avoided at all cost by good husbandry. The book covered a lot of natural history and from that information owners should be able to tell what ranges of humidity to use for their tree frogs. The natural history sections of the various tree frogs was informative and interesting even if I can never get one of the more rare/expensive or delicate tree frogs. Overall, I think the book is a good read for people with tree frogs, or for people just interested in herps.

Great Book

The book is very good for beginers who need help with tree frogs. I highly recomend it. But there were a few things that did bother me. First they really didn't specifiy the humidities at all, only ranges, and if the humidity is to high it can lead to respatory problems to your frogs. And second the author recomended using distilled water with frogs. NEVER EVER USE DISTILLED WATER ON ANY KIND OF AMPHIBIAN! It is very harmful to them, if you know anything about diffusion you'll understand. But other than these little things it is a very good book, and worth the money if your looking for good info on various species of tree frogs.

Very Informative

This book was quite thourough. I bought it to learn some more about tree frogs before I purchased one. I think that it is quite informative and not intimidating.

Very Informative

This book was very informative in describing the needs of tree frogs. The section on feeding was a particular point of interest for me as I am a novice at keeping frogs. Overall it was a good read.
