Sara Stein is nuts about animals. Stein's recommendations suit every domestic situation. Skunks, for example, work well in an apartment. A big backyard is ideal for keeping a goat or two. If parents don't want a pet running through the house, tarantulas are happy in a nice glass vivarium. And if indoor pets are out of the question, Stein explains how to befriend the pigeons in the park or the rabbits in the yard.

Sara Stein is nuts about animals. In this mammoth pet encyclopedia she identifies dozens of unusual and not-so-unusual critters that make great pets in the house, in the yard, and in the wild. Over the years she's raised a monkey, a coyote, and a horned toad, and she came within a heart-beat of taking home a wallaby.

Sara Stein is nuts about animals. Over the years she's raised a monkey, a coyote, and a horned toad, and she came within a heartbeat of taking home a wallaby. In this mammoth pet encyclopedia she identifies dozens of unusual and not-so-unusual critters that make great pets in the house, in the yard, and in the wild. Stein even suggests temporary pets kids can bring home to observe overnight and return to their natural habitat the next morning.

Stein's recommendations suit every domestic situation. Skunks, for example, work well in an apartment. A big backyard is ideal for keeping a goat or two. If parents don't want a pet running through the house, tarantulas are happy in a nice glass vivarium. And if indoor pets are out of the question, Stein explains how to befriend the pigeons in the park or the rabbits in the yard.

For all her enthusiasm, Stein takes a common-sense approach to pets. Each entry discusses diet, housing, special problems, life span, and just how tame you can expect the pet to become. She also tells you whom to call if you wind up with a sick snake or an angry parrot. Stein devotes an entire chapter to which type of vivarium, aquarium, serpentarium, cage, or hutch is best suited to which creature. She even explains how to build an inexpensive-but-comfortable habitat.

Whether you like them furry, slithery, slimy, or scaly; whether you want one that swims, crawls, leaps, flies, or hardly moves at all, you'll find a pet in this book suited to every family's taste.

I ended up enjoying this one the most. It has a bunch of great information that I really needed to read and understand. It has so much information that it can be the only book you will ever need on pets!

I saw this book while browsing at a book store recently. I flipped to the section about rats, since I have several of my own as was curious about what the author had to say. I have to admit that I was pleased when the first thing I read was that most cages sold in pet stores are too small for rats (which is often true). However my attitude completely changed after that sentence.

Instead, Stein recommends keeping your rat in a 10-gallon aquarium or a homemade cage made out of two 8" x 11" cake pans and wire. Not only are both of these an inappropriate size for even one rat, glass aquariums are rarely the best choice for keeping a rat.

Stein even goes on to say that you do not need to put anything in the cage except for food, water, and maybe some paper towels. Rats are extremely intelligent animals and need more stimulation than they can gain from just paper towels. I did not even see anything that mentioned that rats do exponentially better living in pairs or more.

I could go on, but I will just say that I was I was really disappointed to see the misinformation that was being provided by someone who is "nuts about animals". Just because you have kept a lot of animals does not mean you are an expert on any of them. If she was that wrong about rats, how wrong is she about the rest of the animals in the book?

I cannot minimize the huge effect this book has had on my daughter's life! She started reading this book when she was about 8, and I would say she has read it about 30 times. She has memorized it and at 13, is a consultant for all my friends when they have pet issues at home. She knows not just how to choose the right pet for any situation, but knows great detailed of the care of animals. Amazing book!!

I highly reccomend this book if you to are a mass-animal (especially pets) lover, such as my self. This book covers so many awesome pets. It covers a very wide range of pets, from reptilians to rodents! Spot on!:) Get it at your local library if you can't buy it! Believe me, you'll check it out again and again!

There's a lot of pap on the animal/pet book market, but this one rises above the rest. Written clearly and with personality and experience, Sara Stein also includes diagrams on how to construct shelters for the animals in this book. Great job!

I had this book when I was a teenager. I used to love to read through the explanations about animals I knew I'd never have, like spiders or goats. But it was interesting for me anyway. Most lovely, the author's love and respect for all animals shines through. And it's very clever to describe a toad as an "overnight guest." I got a copy for my cousin's kids, who live in the country on the edge of some woods and fields.

This book is by an author who has kept hundreds of pets over the years. She knows a lot about the pets that you may never even think of. This book is good for deciding what pet is good or you and a great start on keeping one of the tons of pets listed. It also includes a construction of the homes or cages for each pet, plus a instructional on how to make it. ;-)
I must have checked this out of the library at my elementary school at least 50 times. I have read it and reread it and I love it. I think they should make a sequel.
