I currently have a Druid in my game that is approaching epic level. In the epic level handbook there is a passage that I cannot find clarification on. The passage reads:

Animal Companion: The druid may have a maximum number of animal companions equal to twice her class level, as normal.

This implies to me that a druid may have multiple animal companions. I have searched the player handbook, epic level handbook, and the complete adventurer for an answer to this question. Is this question answered in another book that I do not own?

Quoting a relevant topic from community.wizards.com:

from the DMG Errata:

(Careful, the link points to a zip file from Wizards.com. Always scan files for viruses etc upon download!)

Epic Druid

Dungeon Master’s Guide, page 208

Problem: Druids no longer get multiple animal companions.

Solution: Replace the Animal Companion paragraph with the following text:

Animal Companion: The epic druid’s animal companion continues to increase in power. At every three levels higher than 18th (21st, 24th, 27th, and so on), the companion gains +2 bonus Hit Dice, its natural armor increases by 2, its Strength and Dexterity modifiers increase by 1, and it learns one additional bonus trick.
