The greatest tool for any reptile keeper

Reptile keeping can be fun and exciting but it's important to do plenty of research before purchasing your new snake or lizard to ensure that you know what you are doing and can provide a suitable habitat for your new scaly friend. Our range of books on reptiles and natural history is a great place to start, featuring volumes from many leading reptile supplies brands like Arcadia, ECO and Zoo Med. This range also includes books on amphibians and invertebrates, so that everyone can find the information they need for keeping reptiles and all exotic pets.

What are reptile books?

Reptiles and amphibians are fascinating creatures; every breed is different and has a variety of unique needs that must be cared for from Bearded dragons and Royal pythons to Leopard geckos and Crested geckos. While care sheets and blog posts are a massive help, sometimes you might have a specific question or situation that just isn’t covered anywhere. That’s where reptile books can help. Reptile books are comprehensive guides written by professional naturalists about specific species and types of animals to help guide you in the care of your pet. We even check our entire range of reptile books regularly to ensure that all of the detailed information is up to date.

Why should I buy reptile books?

Reptile books are packed full of lots of tips you won’t find anywhere else for caring for your reptiles including ways to encourage their instincts and minimise their stress. While all the hardware and accessories we sell will go a long way towards building an ideal habitat for your pet, reptile books will give you the exact knowledge you need to ensure they thrive. All of the information in these books comes from reputable sources, so you can put much more stock in it than anything found on the internet.

What are the main types of reptile books?

Reptile books are generally separated by the types of reptiles and amphibians they are about. We do also sell a few general books to give you an overview of reptile keeping, which might be useful if you’re a newcomer to the hobby or are trying to learn about biology and conservation in the world of reptiles. Simply find the books relevant to your pet’s species and pick one up so you can study up on the best ways to promote their health and happiness.

What should I look for?

There’s not much more to do once you’ve found the book relevant to your pet’s species. However, we also recommend picking up books if you’re trying to decide on a new pet as they give the best summary of a reptiles behaviour and needs to help you make a decision.
