Exotic Animal Care and Management provides a comprehensive and unique learning experience, focusing entirely on exotic animal care, and husbandry. Written with an emphasis on the benefit of direct, hands-on knowledge of the species makes this resource unique. It addresses behavior, habitat, husbandry and diet for each species. Common diseases for each species are discussed at length, from the perspective of providing nursing care, and recognizing signs of health problems. The companion student workbook provides actual case studies and study questions directly related to the text.
