How do you weigh a panda? Or check a sea lion's tooth? Or figure out why a llama is limping? These are just some of the many tasks veterinarians, technicians, and animal keepers at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo are trained in. With full-color photos and lively, accessible text, Curious About Zoo Vets looks at the very busy “to do” list of zoo workers as they take care of their creatures large and small.
The Smithsonian’s National Zoo features a series of habitats in which their extraordinary animals thrive. Elephant Trails is home to its 6 Asian elephants; Giant Panda Habitat, 4 Giant Pandas; Great Cats has 3 lions, 6 lion cubs, and 3 tigers; Great Ape House, gorillas and orangutans; Reptile Discovery Center, cobras, turtles, alligators; American Trail, wolves; Small Mammal House, North American porcupine; Amazonia, arpaima, black pacus and piranha; The Bird House; owls and numerous other avian species.

Our National Museum of Natural History’s Department of Vertebrate Zoology studies birds, fishes, mammals, amphibians and reptiles.
Ages 6 to 8. Paperback, 32 pages.
