    I wouldn't have wanted to be in the publishers shoes when he saw the latest edition of his book.

    On the upside it's just become alot more collectable.

    Is the mistake that there's a legless lizard on the cover? I can't see too small of a pic.

    Any ideas where I can buy one? Guess they didn't show Rick the cover image before going to print!

    Bwhaahahah wat a mess
    You will alot of reptile have overlooked mistakes, like telling the reader snakes arent venomous when they are or saying that Central netted dragons have the Exact same diet and requirements as Ackies, but that cover by far takes the cake

    If you see a copy grab it because they are not sending anymore out until the mistake is fixed.
    I managed to get a few copies, but I had to hunt around.
     
  14. Saw some a few weeks ago, might have to grab them.

    I saw this the other week and thought it very odd haha.
    I didn't buy it though because I had already bought the same book with a young GTP on the cover (this is the exact same book isn't it??).

    It gives a credit to the girl who did the cover design but don't list the species. Funny that.
    It's like they didn't check or something :shock:
