Exotic Animal Field Guide : Nonnative Hoofed Mammals in the United States. by Elizabeth Cary Mungall.

Exotic animals range in appearance from truly striking to seemingly ordinary, and they live in wildlife preserves, on farms, in parks, and even in the wilderness across the United States. In this book, Elizabeth Cary Mungall provides ample information for anyone, from park visitor and zoo goer to rancher and wildlife biologist, who wants to identify and learn more about exotic wildlife in the United States.Richard D. Estes, author of The Safari Companion, says that "for everyone interested in exotic hoofed stock, Exotic Animal Field Guide is a well-written and beautifully illustrated book that fills a vacant niche." Indeed, the main portion of the book contains fully illustrated species accounts of eighty different kinds of hoofed animals, with native range maps and information about food habits, habitat, temperament, breeding and birth seasons, and fencing needs. A list of exotics-related organizations and a reference section round out the text.Photographs of each species make the book both attractive and useful as a field tool. In a chapter on photographing exotics, Christian Mungall shows readers how to take their own great pictures of these animals.Clearly, as James G. Teer, of the Department of Wildlife and Fisheries Sciences at Texas A&M University states, this is "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 non-native hoofed animals. . . . Anyone with exotics on his or her property will require Exotic Animal Field Guide."

Not as extensive per species as I would have liked. But then again, it is a "field guide".
The pages are glossy and thick. The covers are thick and tough. These factors make it ideal for backpack or dashboard keeping. Ideal for a quick reference.
The content is consice and to the point. Well written and informative.
I recommend this book and think it is worth the money.

I am a coin collector (focus on designs, not investor). I fell in love with South Africa's gold Natura coins - especially the ones featuring animals with interesting and "artistic" horns. Since these coins are too expensive for my budget I decided to get a book showing the "actual" animals. This book has excellent pictures, maps, background, and special care info. An interesting note is that many of these animals were taken from Africa and later crossbred and developed into new breeds on specialty ranches in Texas. I learned a lot about a subject I was completely ignorant about. "Horned" animals include more then one would think: all kinds of deer - moose; antelope-gazelle types; thick skinned elephants, rhinos and hippos; and wild boars, etc. I WAS a zoology major in college but not "into" farming or animal husbandry. I came to this book with an artistic slant and found it more enjoyable than I had anticipated.

Good read. A very nice quick reference for anyone looking to add exotics to a ranch. Does not provide detailed assessment of a particular animals needs or how it interacts with other species.

I was seeking this book and this was the best price I found on this book.
