About this book

Divided into 3 main sections:

Section 1 contains 17 papers on Small Mammals in Captivity which reflect the diverse physiological and behavioural adaptations of a group of animals long neglected as zoo subjects including mongooses, red pandas, beavers, prairie dogs, shrews, treeshrews, mouse lemurs, hutias, tenrecs and neotropical bats.
Section 2 contains 73 papers on breeding, husbandry, hand-rearing, building and exhibits, conservation and education.
Finally, section 3 lists the vertebrate species bred in captivity during 1973, where each was bred and which were offspring of captive-born parents.
