Reviews

The English language edition of Chameleons was revised and translated from the very successful German language edition published in 1995.  It introduces chameleons in all their beauty and curiosity and puts together a mosaic of "Chamaeleonology" through individual chapters written on the basis of modern herpetology and herpetoculture.  This book is partly a compilation of published information and partly a summary of unpublished data from various breeders, biologists, and veterinarians, with the author's view reflected on each particular topic.  A complete bibliography containing a majority of available literature on chameleons is also included, along with more than 280 color photos and 45 black and white drawings and photos.  "This book will always be remembered as a launching pad for all future work in the realm of chameleon research and the adventures we have, whether  in the forest or the living room, with this diverse family of these saurian gems" (from the Foreword by Ronald L. Tremper).

"If there was one chameleon book I would recommend anyone to buy, this would be the one.  If you ever plan to own a chameleon, you will find this book an invaluable resource tool." -- Richard Meyer, Herpetofauna Journal, Vol. XV, No. 1

"With brilliant and stunning photos, educational illustrations to complement the text, and excellent writing one would be hard-pressed to find a better general resource on chameleons for your bookshelf." -- Jeff Moorbeck, Sonoran Herpetologist, 12 (12) 1999

"… the book serves as a thorough and current compendium of information on chameleons and will be of interest to both amateur and professional herpetologists." -- Herpetological Review, 30 (4), 1999

"… numerous superb color photographs; many excellent fine drawings and other artwork.  An attractive, well-organized compendium of useful information on animals that have considerable popular appeal." -- E.D. Keiser, Choice, April 1999

"Veterinarians, hobbyists and breeders alike would benefit from this extensively researched and footnoted wealth of information…a must own for any serious chameleon lover." -- Susan Dryer, Animal Keepers' Forum, May 2000

"The text has been gathered from worldwide research material and is well documented to allow the reader to find further information.  I would highly recommend this text for a reptile practitioner's library." -- Rob Coke, DVM, Exotic DVM, Volume 2.5, 2000
