Poison Frogs: Biology, Species and Captive Husbandry
By Lotters, Stefan; Jungfer, Karl-Heinz; Henkel, Friedrich Wilhelm; and Schmidt, Wolfgang
Pp. 668; 828 color photos of frogs, tadpoles, and color distribution maps. Color pictorial laminated black boards (hardcover), lettered on the spine and front cover in white, thick lg 8vo. Co-published with Serpent’s Tale of Laneboro, Minnesota. The present book is certainly not the only one dealing with poison frogs, however, it fills a particular gap. It consolidates everything that is known about poison frogs. Its comprehensive bibliography demonstrates in an impressive manner just how many treatises on the systematics and biology of the Dendrobatoidea have been published over the past thirty or so years. Terrarium keepers and zoologists who now wish to keep and study poison frogs need not repeat the mistakes we made at the time. They can tap into the latest state of knowledge on the systematics, biology, and taxonomy of this fascinating group of animals and find out easily how to best observe, keep and breed them and which diseases may occasionally occur (modified after the rear cover blurb). This massive well-illustrated volume will stand for many years as an authoritative source on poison frogs. No ownership marks.
