In Reply to: RHAC BOOK FOLLOW-UP posted by Raymond Moreno on September 28, 2002 at 03:25:47:
: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
:::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
::::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.
