A great book! Lots of information I needed for my Box turtle.

Best all-in-one box turtle care resource available today. I've raised box turtles for years, have a college education in animal husbandry, and have read much of the literature available (print & web). Tess Cook took the best of the best, including input from hobbyists & veterinarians, and put it all in one place. Although we think differently on some minor issues, none of the advice given is "wrong", and all of the important, *up-to-date* and necessary information for keeping & raising a healthy box turtle is included. I highly recommend this book to anyone who wants or already has a box turtle, even if they already have another book on their care.
