Hi All,

I know this thread is a little old now however, after looking at the Arcadia catalogue for 2014 it appears that the next book in the series is going to be called "The Arcadia Guide To Reptile And Amphibian Nutrition". What I was wondering is does anybody know when we can get our hands on this book. As the catalogue just states coming soon.

I am sure that anybody that read John's other book on MBD will agree that this was a fantastic read, with some very good upto date information and provided a very good and easy to understand insight into MDB and it's elimination.

Now I must admit, I am excited to get my hands on the new book but can't seem to find anywhere that says when it is going to be released. It's not even listed on Amazon as upcoming releases yet. Perhaps John could give us a clue??

Anyway for those that are interested, here is the description from the Arcadia catalogue and the ISBN so if you are looking to order when we get a release date the details are below.

"The Arcadia Guide To Reptile and Amphibian Nutrition is a cutting edge
guide to the effective feeding of live reptiles, amphibians and inverts. The
book covers common food sources and breaks down the vitamin and mineral
groups individually and explains there uses and interactions with each other.
With a forward by TVs Dr Mike Leahy and contributions from a herp vet and
one of the UKs top iguana experts this full colour 51k word book is sure to
enlighten keepers of all species and at all levels of expertise.."

ISBN:-978-0-9576570-1-4

Matt

Just to confirm,

Yes we will be releasing the next in our series of reptile and amphibian keeping books this spring. We are aiming for late feb, early march.

This new title is a logical next step on from the MBD book and deals with feeding, vitamins, minerals and their interactions and uses and where they may be obtained in the wild diet.

It's a bit of a big old book this one and it is in more detail than book 1. The plan was always to ease new keepers in gently before unleashing deeper and deeper science. I am happy with the result.


The new book has many more images and all from the fantastic "Adam Hough" photography, there is a section from a qualified zoo vet and a respected green iguana expert and a forward by TVs Dr Mike Leahy of "Bite me". one of my fav chapters is with regard to "wild self supplementation"............

I will not give much more away for now but please watch our facebook page for further details, launch date and special offers.

If you do not have "The Arcadia Guide to MBD and it's Elimination in captivity" I strongly suggest that you read this first. Full RRP is only 9.99 and it is available from all reptile shops, instore and online or from your local library by request.

There will be 5 books in total over 3 years.....or that is the plan.....id better stop messing about on forums and get typing hey

John.

I have some news for you.

I have posted up an image of the front cover on our Facebook page.

We are on countdown now with actual print due at the beginning of March if all goes well.

There will be offers and pre-orders available in your local store and at online reptile retailers and on our educational website www.Arcadia-reptile.com

There is also going to be some in store meet and greets/signing events. The first one will be at livefoodsbypost on the wonderful island of wight in early April.

I'm super happy with the design so far, I do hope that the years that it has taken to write will be enjoyed by all who read it
