    Default The book wait is over !!!!


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I am pleased to announce that the reptile book series that myself, Scott Eipper and Adam Elliott have been working on for what seems to be eons (well at least 9 years for me) are finally to be released in the next month, with the official public release at the Reptile Expo in Ipswich.

    My contribution is five books, four of which will be released immediately and the 'Bible" (“A Guide to Australian
    Lizards in Captivity”) that is completed and will be released next year.
    Scott has produced two titles on Elapids/Colubrids and one on Frogs
    Adam has produced a title on Turtles and is still working on his Python manuscript.

    The following is a synopsis of my book contents:

    “A Guide to Australian Lizards in Captivity” DUE OUT 2013
    This full colour, 963 page book by Dr Danny Brown provides the most comprehensive and detailed account of Australian Lizards species with information on all aspects of captive husbandry relating to all species of Australian Lizards that may be maintained in captivity. This includes individual chapters on Bynoe’s and Desert cave Geckoes, Dtellas and House Geckos, Chameleon Geckos, Giant Cave and Giant Tree Geckos, Knob-Tailed Geckos, Leaf-Tailed geckos, Spiny-Tailed Geckos, Ring-Tailed Geckos, Small Terrestrial geckos, Thick-Tailed Geckos, Velvet Geckos and the Pygopods including Delma’s, Scaly-Foots and Burtons Legless Lizards, Blue-Tongued and Shingleback Skinks, Burrowing Skinks, Crevice Skinks and their Allies, Forest and Water Skinks, Prickly Forest and Nangur Skinks, Rainbow Skinks, Sand Swimmers, Slender Blue-Tongue Skinks, Pink-Tongued Skinks, Small Terrestrial Skinks, Striped Skinks, Bearded Dragons, Crevice and Rock Dragons, Two-Lined Dragons, Earless dragons, Heath Dragons, Frilled Dragons, Large Arboreal Dragons, Rainforest dragons, Sand Dragons, Small arboreal Dragons, Thorny Devils, Water Dragons, , Large Terrestrial and Arboreal Monitors, Rock Monitors, Rainforest Monitors, Small Terrestrial Monitors, Small and Medium Arboreal Monitors and Water Monitors.
    The book is littered with the largest collection of reptile images ever presented with over 3000 images from some of Australia’s finest reptile photographers, many unique to this book and many showing species never before illustrated, undescribed species and unobserved behaviours. These full colour images show all aspects of sexing, housing, breeding as well as the general appearance of the species within each chapter including dozens of morphotypes of visually variable species.
    Whilst this title is a compilation of a proportion of the information in the four individual titles on Dragons, Skinks, Monitors, and Geckos and Pygopods it includes an additional four chapters, more extensive information on natural history, taxonomy and husbandry techniques and over 3000 images, almost twice the unique images of all the individual books combined.

    The Book begins with a 100 page section on General husbandry that covers Stock Selection, Handling and Hygiene, Transportation, Purchase Etiquette, Security and Safety, Quarantine, Indoor and Outdoor Enclosure Options, Enclosure size, Compatibility, Ventilation, Substrate choices, Hide sites, Enclosure Enrichment, Heating, Lighting, Thermostats, Invertebrate and Vertebrate food items, Artificial diets, Culturing Insect foods, Dietary Supplements and Dealing with Feeding problems.
    This is followed with 60 pages on breeding that includes Visual sexing techniques, other Sexing techniques including some revolutionary new methods, Courtship and Mating, Cooling and Separation, Reproductive Strategies, Caring for gravid females, Nest facilities, Egg Management, Artificial Incubation facilities and regimes, Temperature Dependent Sex Determination and Hatchling care.
    The final section in the Husbandry chapters is a comprehensive 40 page guide to common Diseases and Disorders of Australian Lizards such as Nutritional, Parasitic, Skin, Nail, Eye, Respiratory, Traumatic, Reproductive and Oral disorders. This is completed with a guide to Administration of Medications and Making the most of your Reptile Veterinarian.
    Within each of the 39 Genus/Species chapters, information is presented on Pronunciation, Descriptions, Sexing, Subspecies, Distribution, Habitat, Captive status, Indoor and Outdoor Housing, Compatibility, Feeding, Breeding methods, Incubation, Colour variants and Hybrids. Much of this information is published here for the first time.
    The book is completed with chapters on Herpetological Societies, Websites, an extensive Bibliography and a Glossary of common reptile words and phrases.

    My small book series includes:

    They should be up on http://www.reptilepublications.com in the next few days ready for release first week of November. I will also be selling them on my site, all signed copies of course, on www.geckodan.com (the IT boys are setting it up as we speak).I believe Chimera has stock ordered and will be advertising them in the next cataloque for the Europeans.
