“Much more than a field guide. Elizabeth Cary Mungall’s book is a long awaited repository and data source on the ecology, technology, and management of more than 80 species of nonnative hoofed animals. . . . Anyone with exotics on his or her property will require Exotic Animal Field Guide.”—James G. Teer, founding member of the Texas Chapter of the Wildlife Society

Since Elizabeth Cary Mungall’s original Exotic Animal Field Guide was published in 2007, the diversity and number of species of nonnative hoofed animals has surged in the United States. To better serve the growing industry of raising exotics and related conservation efforts, this revised edition of Exotic Animal Field Guide includes ten new animal species, along with a fully updated photography guide encompassing the latest technology in digital photography.

Beautifully illustrated species accounts of deer, antelopes, sheep and goats, cattle, and other truly exotic animals such as giraffes and zebras are the highlight of this book. Also included are chapters about the history of exotics in the United States, where to see them, and hints on exotic animal ownership. Like the original field guide, each animal profile includes native range maps, information about food habits, habitat, temperament, breeding and birth seasons, fencing needs, and photographs of the animals. Updated lists of exotics-related organizations and further readings, a glossary, and a comprehensive reference section round out the text, making this new edition even more useful as a field tool for both new and experienced exotic animal owners and conservationists.
