Overview

With an estimated 6-7 million green iguanas in the U.S. alone, these lizards are considered the king of reptile pets. But sadly, a high percentage of these wonderful creatures suffer needlessly or die in captivity, due mostly to incorrect care information. But things have changed with the book that some are calling the "bible" of iguana care books. Green Iguana-The Ultimate Owner's Manual is the first book to offer comprehensive, accurate and scientifically valid information on this topic. What's more, author James W. Hatfield III writes in such a lively, engaging manner that reading this book is as pleasurable as settling down with a good novel. 650 pages, 9 chapters, 10 appendices plus 16 pages color photos, 16 B&W photos, 35 graphs/ charts/ illustrations.

Excellent book to update yourself on iguana info. The info on Iguana care has changed through the years and James Hatfield has written the perfect book. It is very easy to read and very entertaining. You would expect for an iguana book to be very dry. James does a great job of keeping your attention! Great Book!

I bought this book because I got a new ig.-a female. We have 4 males but I knew nothing about a female. I needed lots of help. I have enjoyed the info. in this book and have learned quite a bit more than I already knew, which I thought was a lot. I like reading about others that have igs and their stories that are in this book. It is nice the author included this. It adds a lot to the book.

I have read many books on Iguanas and this one is by far the best I've come across yet, I read from cover to cover and use it as a manual for daily care. Anyone who ownes an Iguana should also own this book.

This is the best book to get for Iguana care. It covers everything from basic feeding to housing and much, much more! A must read for every Iguana owner, and a must read for a soon to get Iguana owner!

This is a great book to teach present owners and soon to be owners of this green wonder. A real must have and an easy read for all. Funny and heart warming stories.

This book is a comprehensive guide to the successful keeping of green iguanas (iguana iguana). It outlines in plain English all of the requirements necessary to keep these animals, including habitat, food and medical diagnosis and care. It definitely is a must-read for anyone contemplating the purchase of a green iguana, for such animals require far more care and maintenance than a typical house pet such as a cat or dog. While it relies a bit too much on anecdotal reports from iguana owners, the reduction of biological and medical terminology does make the book accessible to the average pet owner who has recently bought an iguana or is contemplating buying one. This book definitely should be purchased BEFORE one buys an iguana, but it should certainly be in the library of anyone who has an iguana now.

This manual is very 'user friendly' and is a must-have if you are planning to have an iguana for a pet, or if you already own an iguana. The book covers what to look for from purchasing a pet, what to do when you get him/her home, the diet, the importance of heat, how to tame your iguana, how to achieve trust in each other, how to choose a vet, to building the ultimate habitat. As I read the manual I felt more at ease and not alone, as there were actual quotes from other owners that had already experienced the learning process I was going thru. I recommend this as a 'must-have.'
