Edition matters, don't bite it before checking the tags...

The PHB does not state the duration of the druid's transformation into animals, only that they can become a bird, a reptile, and a mammal once per day.

How long can the druid remain transformed?

    \$\begingroup\$ @nitsua60 cheers. I was actually trying to fool all those newbies that would come and say "but of course it only lasts for X hours. It is right there in the book.... ooh wait a minute" \$\endgroup\$ – Mindwin Sep 27 '17 at 2:33

The druid can stay in animal form as long as they want, as quoted from The Complete Druid's Handbook, Page 7.

Shifting shape takes one round, during which the druid cannot take other actions. The druid can remain in the new shape indefinitely-the duration of a form ends only when the druid turns back to the original shape or assumes another one. A druid can shift from one shape to another without returning to human form first.
