THIS remarkable work should be read by all zoologists and others interested in animal life. It consists of what can best be described as a series of vivid verbal vignettes of incidents observed at Hagenbechs Stellingen zoo and elsewhere, and reveals much of the characters and temperaments of the great beasts and birds lodged in such establishments. The thirty-two magnificent photographic illustrations are as striking as the text itself. The translation is very well done.
