Rate this:
From the moment the very first animals--two small, bedraggled prairie dogs--arrived at the Bronx Zoo in 1899, history was being made. Zookeeping has steadily been evolving over the years: Today, animals that would once have been kept in iron cages roam freely in habitats similar to real prairies, jungles, and forests. With engaging animal photos and lively anecdotes,Wild Livestakes readers through a century of zookeeping at one of the most-beloved zoos in the world, and shares what zoologists have learned over the years about keeping wild animals.
