Educational ebooklet series by Todd A. Gearheart

Are you tired of not being able to find really good and accurate information on a particular species ? The hobby lacks any good books that has detailed information about a specific species . Care sheets on the internet often contain erroneous information often written by young authors and/or others with little experience in keeping, breeding and shipping the species. Todd Gearheart has used his extensive experience of over 28 years collecting, importing/exporting, establishing, breeding and shipping thousands of invertebrate and reptile species to create these very helpful and educational "ebooklets" to help the inverterbrate/reptile hobbyist.

These ebooklets are Adobe Acrobat documents  that can be opened on your computer and viewed with the free Adobe Acrobat Reader program on any PC or MAC computer in any country.

These "ebooklets" are typically five to 10 pages long with several color photographs showing babies, juveniles, sub-adults to mature adults of the species being profiled.

Topics include:

• Coloration/pattern

• Original description

• Range

• Habitat

• Size

• Growth rate

• Type

• Temperament

• Urticating hairs

• Venom potency

• Hobbyist level for care

• Temperature

• Humidity

• Substrate

• Shelter needs

• Water needs

• Food/feeding frequency

• Tank/cage size and type

• Transferring and conducting tank maintenance

• Breeding notes

• Egg sac size/ # of spiderlings

• Buying guide

• References

• Photo gallery:  (five color pics of spiderlings, sub-adult, mature male and adult female)
