Well Sue,

to tell you the truth, the book is pretty technical. And since I believe it was originally published in German, I can "taste" a hint of the translation. (Or should we say, "transliteration")?

And if you are expection a whole buncha information on just cresties...you won't find it. It covers all of the RHACODACTYLUS species, and not just the "Ciliatus". (Our beloved cresty's).

But I have heard from a couple of sources that someone is in the final stages of writing a detailed book specifically on the cresty's...and I beleieve it might be Allen Rapashy. (Am I right Allen)?

If that's the case, you're kinda tight on the "shekels," and you are not really interested in obtaining a great reference library on cresty's...then wait for this new book to come out.

I'm not saying that it's not a good book. It's just that IT IS NOT a "cresty-specific" book, hence you may be disappointed in spending that amount of money on it, only to find the pages evenly shared with the "other" Rhacodactylus brother's.

Hope this helped, Sue. (And any other's that may be reading my "psycho-babble").

In Christ: Raymond

.::Hey guys,

::thanks for all the help and leads. (My "favourites list" for sellers of reptile literature is growing by the minute)!!

::I ended-up finding the same book at "East Bay Vivarium" (in Berkeley), for $45.00. (Which satisfied my need to have it NOW...as well as being able to support/patronize my local reptile shop).

::Thanks again...and the book is turning-out to be very informative. (About ALL of the "Rhacodactylus" species).

::In Christ: Raymond

:::Hey guys,

:::a few posts ago, someone posted a link to a website called "Trempers Lizard Ranch". These folks were supposed to sell the "Rhacodactylus" book for the "nice price" of $37.50...shipped to your door.

:::But I have e-mailed these guys a few times, over a few different days, and they have not responded to me.

:::So if someone does not answer their e-mails in regards to a sale, then I do not feel comfortable with their customer service!! (Blah, ka-pooie, thhhhhhhhhhhh)!!!!!

:::So does anyone know who sells this book for a decent price?

:::Between "Barnes & Noble," and "Amazon.com," they're averaging between $150.00 to $60.00!! (Waaaaaay too expensive).

:::So if someone can post A LINK to a site that is "reputable," has good customer service, answers their e-mails promptly, and has a fair price...I'de appreciate it.

:::Thanks, folks!!

:::In Christ Raymond
