Abstract: The objectives of this thesis research are as follows: 1. Perform nutritional analysis and create a database of selected nutrients for all currently fed feedstuffs for the six species (Guenther's dik-dik, black rhinoceros, Asian elephant, slender-tailed meerkat, Francois' langur and Raggiana bird of paradise) selected for dietary evaluation. 2. Determine 7-day feed consumption and calculate nutrient intakes for these six species through the weighing of feedstuffs and orts. 3. Determine appropriate nutrient intake levels for these six species. 4. Evaluate current diets for nutrient deficiencies or abundances by comparing calculated nutrient intakes to published appropriate nutrient levels for the species. 5. Formulate new balanced rations using local browse, by-products and other available feeds, along with acceptable feedstuff substitutions.
