    Default The Herpetoculture of Leopard Geckos


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    Ron Tremper's new book has just started shipping. It will soon be the new leopard gecko 'bible' and I think we should discuss it here. The book can be purchased from Ron's Site and it's a great price considering it's a hardcover book. My copy should arrive in the next couple of days. I'll give a brief review upon paging through it and a more detailed version after I've read it. Ron is possibly the biggest name in leopard geckos and he knows his stuff. Whether you're new to leos or are an advanced hobbyist you ought to get this book.

    I guess you haven't ever seen the word bible in such context. It's actually pretty common. Many refer an all knowing manual to be a "bible" of sorts.

    Let's try to stay on topic now.

    I got my copy a few days ago. It is not hardcover but still worth the price. I just have to say that its about time someone started making some SERIOUS books!

    Yeah, I was kind of disappointed to see it is softcover. Sorry about the delay on my review. I've been preoccupied, but it'll come soon.

    I believe that the book is way overpriced. Get the book by Robbie Hamper, same info way cheaper. The Tremper book is just a big ad for him and his leos. You would think that no other morphs exist. I was very disappointed.

    i got my book free... with the purchase of 2 800$ raptors. i like it alot.. i think it had some great sections on incubation and breeding/genetics. at first i was happy that they had a "mixed species viv" section like the rhac book, however, i dont really like some of their suggestions. you CAN keep leos and fat tails together, however the fat tail will loose all of its toes and probably slowly starve to death. i think it had alot of nice "do it yourself at home" tips. great pictures. alot of people tried to compair it with the rhac book and said it fell short. but.. theyre 2 totally different books, totally different species, and i think they did a great job.
