At up to 18 inches (46 centimeters) in length, the laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the Kingfisher family. Their stout beaks can grow to 4 inches (10 centimeters).

The laughing kookaburra is well known both as a symbol of Australia’s birdlife and as the inspirational “merry, merry king of the bush” from the children’s song.
Native to the eucalyptus forests of eastern Australia, the laughing kookaburra is the largest member of the Kingfisher family, with females weighing up to one pound (455 grams) and growing to 18 inches (45 centimeters) in length. Its beak can reach 4 inches (10 centimeters) long and is used to snatch a variety of invertebrates and small vertebrates, including the occasional small snake. Since being introduced in western Australia and New Zealand, the kookaburra has angered farmers by preying on their fowl.
The laughing kookaburra has dark brown wing plumage and a white head and underside. Dark brown eye stripes run across its face and its upper bill is black. Its reddish-colored tail is patterned with black bars.
It gets its moniker from its manic laughter-like call. And its early dawn and dusk cackling chorus earned it the nickname “bushman’s clock.”
Laughing kookaburras are monogamous, territorial birds that nest in tree holes. Females lay one to five eggs, which are tended by a collective unit composed of parents and elder siblings. Fledgling kookaburras generally remain with their parents to help care for the subsequent clutch.

1st Edition
A title in the Practical Veterinarian series, this comprehensive, concise reference has been developed by Diplomates of the American College of Theriogenologists tohelp veterinary students,veterinarians, and veterinary technicians quickly find answers to common questions. Quick-reference information in an outline format presents the normal reproductive anatomy and physiology, reproductive disorders, and breeding management in dogs and cats. Tables and illustrations further clarify key concepts. This book also serves as an easy-to-understand introduction to veterinary theriogenology touching on all aspects of small animal reproduction, including physiology and pathology of the male and female reproductive systems and the clinical practice of veterinary obstetrics, gynecology, and semenology.
  • Easy-to-use, pocket sized format keeps key facts within reach in any setting.
  • Outline format makes finding information quick and easy.
  • The ONLY book written on small animal theriogenology forsmall animal veterinarians designed for quick reference.
  • All content is current and the authors are Diplomates of the American College of Theriogenologists to ensure the most authoritative information, including discussions of regional or national differences in techniques and medications.
  • Coverage of veterinary neonatology presents pediatric content on examining, treating, and feeding neonates that is often overlooked by other texts on the subject.
  • Topics include breeding management, pregnancy diagnosis and care, pregnancy termination, artificial insemination and preparation of chilled and frozen semen, emerging technologies in veterinary reproduction, and diseases of the reproductive tract including vaginitis, prostate disease, and pyometra.

King Vulture

King Vulture

Typically drifting on air currents that keep them aloft, king vultures seek carrion, filling an important ecological niche.
Photograph by Joel Sartore
Like other vultures, the king vulture is a scavenger. These large birds glide on air currents, conserving energy while searching the forests or savanna below for the corpses of dead animals. Because of their unappetizing eating habits, they fill an ecological niche, and may help to prevent the spread of disease by disposing of rotting remains.
King vultures have a very colorful look that distinguishes them from their vulture relatives. They are predominately white, with black tails and wing tips. They have piercing, often straw-colored eyes and multicolored (yellow, orange, and red) heads and necks.
Though brightly colored, the vulture's head and neck are bald. This may help the fastidious birds to stay clean, and ensure that bacteria-laden animal remains don't fester in the bird's plumage where they could spread disease.
Sarcoramphus papa are among the bird world's largest scavengers and have powerful, hooked beaks that are excellently adapted for tearing open tough carcasses. They can often access meals that other vultures cannot, and smaller birds usually give way when they arrive to feed.

A Color Atlas of Avian Anatomy


A Color Atlas of Avian Anatomy

A Color Atlas of AvianAnatomy
By J. McLelland
This colour atlas provides an introduction to how birds are constructed. It is concerned principally with the economically important species, but, where their anatomy significantly differ, the more common caged birds are dealt with. The book is planned around certain body systems including the integument and skeleton and digestive, urogenital andrespiratory tracts. Lymphoid tissue, blood vessels and nerves are dealt with as they occur in association with these systems. In some instances, a straight topographical approach is taken. Most of the photographs are of fresh, unfixed material, some were taken with the aid of a dissecting microscope. The photographs are accompanied by a short text which identifies the various features and explains their function.

Reproduction in Cattle


Reproduction in Cattle

Reproduction in Cattle 
3rd Edition
By Peter J. H. Ball , Andy R. Peters
Cattle play a fundamental role in animal agriculture throughout the world. They not only provide us with a vital food source, but they also provide us with fertilizer and fuel. Keeping reproduction levels at an optimum level is therefore essential, but this is often a complicated process, especially with modern, high yielding cows.
Written in a practical and user-friendly style, this book aims to help the reader understand cattle reproduction by explaining the underlying physiology of the reproductive processand the role and importance of pharmacology and technology, and showing how management techniques can improve reproductive efficiency.

This edition includes:
  • Recent research findings on the physiology of the oestrous cycle and its control;
  • New techniques for monitoring and manipulating reproduction, including pregnancy diagnosis and embryo transfer;
  • Advice on identifying common infertility problems and how to prevent and treat them.
Reproduction Cattle 3e is essential reading for veterinary and agricultural students, as well as veterinarians and farmers involved incattle reproduction.

Blue-Footed Booby

Blue-Footed Booby

Not just attractive physical features, the blue feet of this booby can be used to cover its chicks and keep them warm.
Photograph by Tim Laman
Blue-footed boobies are aptly named, and males take great pride in their fabulous feet. During mating rituals, male birds show off their feet to prospective mates with a high-stepping strut. The bluer the feet, the more attractive the mate.
These boobies live off the western coasts of Central and South America. The Galápagos Islands population includes about half of all breeding pairs of blue-footed boobies.
