    This book is an entertaining and enlightening look at modern zoos, as well as their historical equivalents However, Croke seems not quite to have made up her mind how she, personally, feels about zoos This is fine in that I think most people have mixed opinions However, she never explores this confusion, leaving us with a fragmented view of her personality In one chapter, she will emphasize that truly naturalistic, complex habitats are absolutely vital to happy, healthy social animals And with t [...]
