There are dozens of species of turtles and tortoises available to the hobbyist, each with its own needs that must be satisfied before it can be successfully kept. Keeping a tortoise from South American rain forests requires different methods than keeping a Red-eared Slider, though both share many basic features of their care.
The Guide to Owning Turtles is a great introduction to just what is needed to provide optimal housing, care and feeding for a variety of pet turtles, and it even explains the mysteries of breeding turtles and tortoises. Fully illustrated with over 75 colour photos including both common and rare species, this book is sure to appeal to the budding turtle enthusiast of any background.
