    Hi. I'm doing an assignment that involves setting up a "safari park" I have a variety of animals I need to find dietary information about. eg Eland, what do they eat, how much and what sort of commercial food would I need to buy for them. Does anyone know a good website to find out that sort of info?

    Hi,
    Try Wildlife Parks | Safari Parks UK | UK Wildlife Parks | UK Zoos it is a website that has links to many safari parks and zoos in the UK, which will give you some good info I reckon. Also once you have decided on the species that will be involved in your assignment Wikipedia can be handy at times.

    Try these.

    Mammal Husbandry Manuals

    husbandry.mammals.ews

    Also try just typing the species and care manual or husbandry manual to get AZA manuals for various species. Not all are available but you can get a good variety.
