Monitor Lizards: Natural History, Captive Care and Breeding is one of the most comprehensive guides to the captive husbandry and breeding of Australian and non-Australian monitors. It is common knowledge that those outside of Australia (and particularly in Germany), have a much greater understanding of the husbandry and breeding of Australian reptiles, particularly monitors. Bernd Eidenmuller joined forced with herpetoculturists from throughout the world and devoted 7 years to gathering and documenting this knowledge. The book is comprised of the following chapters -
Taxonomy and systematics
Distribution and habitat
Threats and legislation
Individual species accounts
Many Australians contributed heavily to this title, including Grant Husband, Gavin Bedford, Paul Horner, Matt Vincent, Steve Wilson, Wes Mannion, David Knowles, Greg Fyfe and Michael Anthony. If you have an interest in keeping monitors, this title is essential.
