Default Good books (Amphibians)


Would you be kind enough to recommend the best books relating to amphibians?

I am looking for 2 books, one that covers amphibians and the other that covers RETF.

I appreciate a good book will have lovely price tags but im willing to pay good money for quality books.

Do we have an amphibian Bible as such?

Are you looking for books about amphibian biology, or about keeping them?

Chris Matisson's 'Keeping and Breeding Amphibians' as a good general book on hobbyist amphibian husbandry- it is old now, and has a few mistakes, but it's still worth reading. It's out of print, but is available second-hand for less than £5 on Amazon.

Kentwood Wells' 'Ecology and Behaviour of Amphibians' is probably the best book on general amphibian biology.

Thanks very much.

I will have a look at what you have suggested.

Im interested in the biology, natural habitats and behaviour so I think the above will cover it all.

Thanks again,
