Review:

"In this guide to the behavior of various exotic pets, specific chapters address a species or group of species in detail and the final chapters are a concise overview of learning theory, behavioral pharmacology, and exotic pet welfare. This is a great reference for exotic animal practitioners wishing to learn more about the species-typical behaviors of their patients and methods to prevent and treat common behavior problems.This is a valuable addition to the library of any exotic animal veterinarian or any individual who is interested in the behavior of exotic pets. It is the first book of its kind written by behavior experts with experience treating exotic species." (Doody's Book Review, 2011)

"For veterinary professionals, animal behaviorists, students, and those caring for animals in captivity, Tynes, an animal behavior consultant who previously practiced small and exotic animal medicine, compiles 20 chapters that discuss the behavior of 17 species and groups of exotic pets, including snakes, parrots, lizards, ferrets, rabbits, rats, gerbils, chinchillas, prairie dogs, South American camelids, hedgehogs, and sugar gliders. Veterinary specialists from the US, Argentina, the UK, and Canada address their normal behavior, including reproduction, parenting, diet, communication, and social behavior; environmental needs based on their behavior; and common problems and recommendations for management." (SciTech Book News, December 2010)
