I learned a LOT about iguanas by reading this little non-fiction book. Topics include size, diet, where they live, physical features, how they reproduce, and the history of keeping iguanas as pets. The focus of this book, however, is the reality of having an iguana as a pet such as: how to buy them; creating a safe environment and habitat; caring for the iguana; concerns and problems that cause people to give up their iguanas; and safe handling. There is a glossary, index and table of contents as well as a page that lists books and web sites to learn more about the topic. The pictures and illustrations in this book are engaging, detailed and compliment /reinforce the text. A great addition to the pet section of our library.
