Abstract: The term ‘Zoopharmacognosy’ was coined to describe the process by which wild animals select and use specific plants with medicinal properties against ailments and prevention of disease. Early studies of zoopharmacognosy focused on the interactions between plants and the herbivores that consume them. The study of animal self-medication and ethno-medicinal practices may provide important leads to future sources of medicine. This paper highlights the existence, efficiency and self-medication in wild animals.
