I‘m always fascinated by turtles, love how they move, eat, swim, everything about them.
But being fascinated of turtles doesn’t make me an expert in keeping them as pet – unless I find the right book with the right information that helps to decide which turtle would be the best and how to take care of these little guys so they stay healthy and happy for many many years.
Well, this book happens to be here.
What do you want and what do you need to know before buying a turtle as pet? Well, the answer is simple: every important detail. A good book should give you answers to all your questions.
You want to know what the natural instincts and requirements of turtles are in order to find the best and safest environment indoor or outdoor, to provide them with the best healthy and satisfying food and offer the best and most fun entertainment.
As veterinarian I know that you might want to know about possible illnesses and their treatments – respectively when it‘s time to bring your turtle friend to the vet. You need to know which plants may be harmful for your turtle so you don‘t accidentally add those toxic plants to your turtle’s terrarium.
And speaking of terrarium or aquarium, you also want to know how to keep your turtle‘s home clean and safe and beautiful.
The answers to all these and even more questions are delivered by this following book that is highly recommended by many beginning and already turtle owners.
