Remembering a Species: A History of the Caribbean Monk Seal in Captivity

ByCharles Epting

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
This book chronicles the fascinating, untold story of the Caribbean Monk Seal: the only seal native to the Caribbean Sea, the only species of true seal that has gone extinct in recent times, and, perhaps most interestingly, the only species of recently extinct mammalian carnivore that was displayed in captivity. This book looks at both scientific sources and primary sources to gather what is known about this species' life in captivity in one volume.
