    Vogelspinnen (im terrarium)

    I just got it yesterday and only the looks is great.
    211 color pics and 7 chapters.

    As it it said here, you can read of tarantulas way of life, spreading, behaviour, correct keeping of different species in terrarium, systematics of birdspiders, disease and natural enemies, breeding of spiders and over hundred species in portrait in seven chapters (developing history, systematics of birdspiders, habitus of birdspider, spreading and way of life, right care in terrarium, breeding, buying one) and more specific info/care of different genuses.

    Pics are great and text is easy to read (if you can german :)), great book for all tarantula keepers.

    Original German text - "Vogelspinnen im Terrarium"

    Apart from some minor vocab differences, probably based on translation/ European terms it is a very good book.

    The secies specific info seems very good. as with any book there are the issues with taxonomy ( however this has been addressed with changes noted ( old name vs new name )

    The pictures are great and the reading was enjoyable.

    The use of pictures to illustrate points is well done.
    It was however on the pricey side. ( mine was Hard Cover )

    it is decently thorough for its 140 pages
