Personality plus moderate size, alertness, docility and ease of care make them among the best choice for a pet.

It's ALL here in this book by the masters, de Vosjoli and Mailloux.
The highly acclaimed Advanced Vivarium Systems? series, founded and guided by herpetocultural pioneer Philippe de Vosjoli, are the #1 books on reptile care. From choosing a pet, to selecting a veterinarian, to feeding, housing, breeding, and more, these books deliver the most helpful and up-to-date information available on popular reptiles and amphibians kept as pets.
Philippe de Vosjoli is the herpetocultural pioneer who founded the first nationally distributed reptile and amphibian magazine, The Vivarium, and the best-selling Advanced Viriarium Systems line of reptile care books. His many articles and books have established many of the standards used in the field today, including popularizing terms such as 'herpetoculture" and "vivarium."
In 1995, de Vosjoli was awarded the Josef Laszlo Memorial Award for Excellence in Herpetoculture and for his contribution to the advancement of the field. He is currently working on developing a systems approach to keeping amphibians and reptiles that focus on the aesthetic and functional aspects of naturalistic vivaria.
