This book is simply a textbook explaining a wide range of zoo-related topics including history of zoos, management, animal care & welfare, captive breeding, conservation, exhibit designing, record-keeping, and zoo ethics. It's a great book for those who plan to zoo-related careers and anyone interested in zoo biology.

I had to get this textbook for a Zoo and Aquarium Science (Zoology) class. The professor assigned the whole book. Overall, it was very informative and for the most part interesting.
