- Reptile Mag a must-have for herpers
Very interesting, informative and well produced mag. I read these cover-to-cover and use them for helpful info on the selection of herps as well as a good source for new products. I have made several purchases as a result of the ads from the vendors that support this magazine. Well worth the small investment!...more info
- Not bad, when I recieve any in mail?
I have had the same problem that a previous reviewer said. I have had a Reptiles magazine subscription a few years back and a current one. The previous order had a missing issue and my subscription was not extended. Now my most recent has annoyed me. I recieved three issues, and then no more isues. Even though the Reptiles mag site says I should have recieved at least two issues since then, and I got a supposed extension. After this subscription, no more. I'll do as I have in the past, purchase them as I see them and only if the subjects interest me. So the warning is that this magazine can be unreliable....more info

I don't receive this magazine, but I buy it for my
grandson. He has been receiving it for three years.
He loves it and asks for it every year....more info

My son loves this magazine. The publisher did a good job about getting the subscription started and caught up quickly....more info
- The only game in town--and not a bad job
Reptiles strives to achieve a balance between articles for children and beginners, articles for herpetologists and field photographers, and advanced keepers. Occasionally, it manages this. The truth is that Reptiles and The Vivarium magazines should never have been merged--Reptiles should have remained an invaluable resource for beginners to the hobby, with The Vivarium focusing on in-depth articles for advanced hobbyists.
But, they WERE merged.
There ARE no other paper reptile magazines in the US any longer. This is it. If you own reptiles and amphibians, get this magazine--it's a good way to read up on species you may not have researched before, to see what new products are coming onto the market, to track shows, and to generally be entertained by lots of pretty pictures. You can't beat the price for all of that--you'd have to buy a LOT of books to get all of that information and content.
It doesn't do the best job it could do, but it does do a fairly good job, which makes it worth subscribing to--even if you're an advanced keeper. There's no other source of herp-oriented bathroom reading material. :D...more info
- A BIG Hit with my 8 year old nephew!
I just wanted to update and let you know that my nephew LOVES this subscription! He says there are 65 pages in each issue. I was a little surprised because the price was so reasonable, I would have been happy with just 20 pages, but 65, what a great thing! ...more info
- An excellent magazine if you like herps...
Whether you have any or not, this is a great source of information. I do not currently have any herps but I do work with them at the local zoo. I received my first issue and promptly read it cover-to-cover. I can hardly wait for the next issue....more info
- This and Reptile Hobbyest kill all reptile probs
Reptiles magazine is one of the few remaining magazines that focuses on the care and breeding of reptiles and amphibians, and it does it the best. If you keep reptiles as pets, bussiness or whatever, then suscribe. I have all issues even the first from '94 and those are as useful as can be when I acquire a new animal, are interested, or trying to brush up on knowledge. A herper that lack Reptiles lacks KNOWLEDGE! From iguanas and bearded dragons to abronia and corn snakes to vipers, Reptiles writes intelligent articles on it....more info
- Great Pet Keepers Info.
If you are into reptiles, you can not go wrong with the many, many issues of Reptiles magazine. They are very factual about their information. Sometimes they even give personal opinions and experieices. There are sectons about the care of animals, sections about the population and legal status, and also sections about animal search expeditions.
In the Dec. 2001 issue, they have a great article on the conservation of the Aruba Island Rattlesnake. I personally spend time studying and learning about this species as well. They are very factual on their information. They do not get information from books, or other written documents, they interview people that have gone to the island of Aruba and worked with these animals firsthand.
They also have wonderful keeping and breeding information on different species each month. Like in the Feb. 2002 issue, they give great informatnion on keeping and breeding Feas vipers and Pictus geckos, again, they have done all of this themselves, and know what works and what doesnt.
I would recommend these magazines to everyone into reptiles and/or amphibians. They have great beginner information, like good choices for the first pets, and how to take care of them. They are also good for the advanced keepers. They give information on keeping and breeding rare and difficult animals, They also have interesting search expeditions that interest people of all experience levels....more info
- The best of the best
This is the number one herpetology related magazine on the market! It's full of information, storys, facts and it's enjoyable to read....more info
- "EMI" Reptiles Magazine
I like this magazine but..
It does not have alot of information.I would like to add that this magazine does not just cater to younger people.I am 13 and i do not like it when people say" it has stupid little puzzles you know stuff that only kids would enjoy".I am sure that most kids that get this magazine are smarter than that anyway (but i do not like the puzzles either)including me,Future Zoologist....more info
- It might have been worth it?
I received two issues, then nothing. I can only give it one star, as I haven't had the opportunity to read it! I would have liked to actually read the years worth of magazines that I paid for....more info
- Best reptile publication
Reptiles Magazine is hands-down the best monthly reptile publication. And Amazon has the best price! Win-win!...more info
I'm a solid reader of Reptiles for 3 years now. I LOVE IT! Before I was ever keeping and breeding reptiles myself, I was enjoying this magazine. Every issue is chocked full of pictures and information beyond belief, and it's a good way to shop around to see who's breeding what this year. Great magazine, it's a must get for any herper or plain ol person!...more info
- Can't get any better than this for accurate reptile information
In my opinion, this is the best publication on the market for current, accurate data regarding reptiles. This magazine not only provides well researched and written articles which are invaluable to the serious reptile collector and hobbyist, but has excellent photography of profiled species, as well. Can't do without this one!...more info
- Knowledgable about all types of herps!
This is a great magazine because it balances information about herps that are suitable for pets (The stuff you'd find in a pet store) but also has interesting information on more exotic, unsuitable animals. I wouldn't want to own a Rhino Viper, but I enjoyed reading about it! I first read it in 95', and have recently gotten back into it. I just got my first 2 snakes (corn and milk) and am trying to find back issues that deal with them. Sure, there are a lot of books out there, but there's so much conflicting information out there, so I'm going with someone I trust!...more info
- Great magazine
I love this magazine. My only complaint is that I wish each issue were longer. I get to the end of the magazine and I just want more. ...more info
- Great magazine, for beginners or more advanced herpers
I've been a subscriber for years, first when I was a beginer through when I was breeding and selling at a local show, and now that I am back to just having a few special cold blooded critters around. I like the care information and it has wonderful photographs throughout. The articles are great too for people interested in more exotic species and herps than are available to the casual herper. The advertisements can also be helpful in finding the next breeder you are interested in aquiring animals from or equipment you can't get locally. Great publication! ...more info
- Great magazine, nice pictures
This is a good magazine if you are curious about reptiles and amphibians. It has lovely pictures, and the contents, although scientifically rigorous, are accessible to any reader. It is a nice leisure reading....more info
- Exotic and domestic
I'm in agreement with other reviewers that the magazine does tend to focus too much on exotic species, from the Galapagos Islands to Madagascar; but, for the most part, I found this to be tempered by many very helpful articles for the average herp owner. I have 2 boas, some chameleons, an iguana, and a python--and I believe that "Reptiles" focus on all reptiles has given me a better understanding of my own. This isn't necessarily geared 100% toward the pet owner, but more for the overall enthusiast....more info
- Great info
Magazine has lots of good information. Lots of good advertisements, I often do my shopping from the magazine based on it's ads and recommendations.
