Green Iguana: The Ultimate Owner's Manual by James W. Hatfield III

One of the neatest things about this book is all the information and comments it includes from iguana owners besides the author of the book. Very very thorough and even includes detailed instructions on how to build "The Ultimate Iguana Cage."

Iguanas For Dummies by Melissa Kaplan

Extremely informative and also fun to read. If you're considering an iguana, you should definently pick it up. Melissa Kaplan is renowned in the world of herps and she definently covers all the things you need to know about the iguana here in her book.

Reptiles, Amphibians, and Invertebrates: And Identification and Care Guide by Patricia P. Bartlett, Billy Griswold, DVM, and R.D. Bartlett

This is a very interesting book where each page is a profile of herp or invertebrate which shows a piture and tells what other names they have in the trade (very helpful if you're trying to get a certain species but can't find it), their scientific name, what they look like, what other species are similiar, range, size, life span, what type of terrarium best suits them, diet, potential problems, and more. It's really a good guide and interesting reference book when you want to look up the basics (and a little more) of a particular species.

Rhacodactylus by Philippe de Vosjoli, Frank Fast, and Allen Repashy

The complete guide to their selection and care. Great information on the Crested gecko, but also on the Gargoyle gecko, Mossy prehensile tail gecko, Giant gecko, and others. A lot of crested keepers consider this the "crested bible."

White's and White-Lipped Tree frogs by R.D. Bartlett and Patricia Bartlett

Part of the Reptile Keeper's Guides: facts and advice on care and breeding. Great for easy reference. A good book to have on hand if you own a white's or white-lipped tree frog.
