A lively and highly entertaining examination of the role of zoos in both educating the public and conserving rare and endangered species as well as an exploration of the diversity of animals displayed in finer zoological collections particularly Australia's Melbourne Zoo. Martin's exceptional and uniquely Australian essays also provide a wealth of information on various aspects of the behavior and evolution of more popular and intereting zoo animals including Gorillas, Rhinos, Tapirs, Antelopes, Camels, Birds, Frogs, Pandas Dolphins and more. Beautifully illustrated with Conder's critically acclaimed wildlife drawings including 12 in color, multiple bibliographies. Hardcover/DJ
