A helpful list of dos and don’ts is included as well as a list of foods, with spot images. The pet guidance is more limited with reptiles, since care varies depending on the chosen animal. Additional spreads feature history, record breakers, unusual facts, a quiz, and a flow chart to match your personality to the right pet. Inviting page layouts offer multiple photos per spread and neatly arranged text boxes. “Did you know?” insets appear throughout, adding statistics and fascinating data.
