    Product Review

    Since the early days of traveling menageries and staged attractions that included animal acts, balloon ascents, and pyrotechnic displays, zoos have come a long way. This book presents the evolution of zoos and the expectations of their visitors. It reveals the hazards and rewards of running a modern zoo.

    Default Life at the Zoo

    Zoos are the most popular attractions in the U.S., with attendance that annually outstrips all major professional sports combined. As Robinson, former director of veterinary services at the San Diego Zoo, states, caring for animals in a zoological park is a blend of art, science, and pragmatism. Zoos are still evolving from their bad old menagerie days, and the zoo profession has undergone major transformations in the past 30 years. The author has framed his treatise on the housing and care of zoo animals with his experiences in the profession, and the result is an intimate look at how animal exhibits are designed, how the animals are cared for, and how illness is detected in animals that want to hide any weakness. Enlivened with animal anecdotes, profiles of eccentric zoo staff, and stories he says are "better kept to myself," the author entertains while educating the reader. A well-annotated bibliography completes an excellent introduction to the zoo world that belongs in all libraries.
