Ensiform
The early years of an exotic animal veterinarian. An enthralling, fascinating, hilarious, wonderful story. One thing that impressed me was how much a pioneer Taylor was – no anaesthetic dart guns, no zoo or exotic animals classes in vet school back in the '40s and '50s – yet Taylor made it work. I loved his assessment of Christian outlooks on animals, the drug-dealing Arab episode and especially his anecdotes about the chimps. They certainly are a lot smarter than we think!

An interesting book tells the story of a vet in England that works with zoo animals and how hard it was in the beginning to take care of them.
Lydia
This book is more or less like James Herriot crossed with exotic zoo animals.
Beka
Another fabulous book of zoo stories.
