    Stupid question, but I need to know!

    Why are herp books so expensive in Australia? Is it because herping is considered a niche market so they don't print as many? I just can't wrap my mind around the idea of paying over $100 for a basic husbandry book, especially if I'm buying online and I have no idea whether it's going to...
