Svět sklípkanů (2006)
V knize je na 350 barevných fotografiích zachyceno 200 druhů sklípkanů čeledi Theraphosidae. Kniha je psána v češtině a na 227 stránkách shrnuje dvacet let, kdy jsem je choval, rozmnožoval a studoval. Je logickým uzavřením jedné mé životní etapy a najdete v ní to nejlepší z předchozích dvou knih (Sklípkani z roku 1998 a Chov sklípkanů z roku 2001). Z kapitol, které obsahuje bych rád zmínil alespoň: Jedovatost. Proč chovat sklípkany? Výběr vhodného druhu. Terárium. Nároky na potravu. Teplota. Vlhkost. Rozmnožování. Péče o potomstvo. Co je dobré vědět o systému a vědeckých názvech. Přehled chovaných druhů. Seznam všech sklípkanů. Zeměpisný slovník. Knihu můžete přímo od autora kovarik.scorpio@gmail.com objednat za cenu 340,- Kč.
