A colourful overview of the fauna of Sri Lanka
on 21 July 2011
This is a short though well produced book is a bright, colourful overview of the fauna of the beautiful island of Sri Lanka and therefore an excellent non specialist tourist guide.
The book goes beyond the basics of wildlife in that it provides a good guide to the climate zones and habitats of the country and offers practical advice on what places to visit and what species to look out for. The text is accompanied by generally very good photographs. The author's knowledge and enthusiasm shine through the pages as he takes the reader on a tour.
The specialist bird or animal watcher needs to look at other books of that genre, but as a general guide, the book does a great job in conveying the beauty and excitement of Sri Lanka. I found it a great companion on our trip and would recommend it.
