Book Description

Southern Africa is home to a wealth of mammal species, occupying a great diversity of habitats. This easy-to-use, compact book is the perfect pocket identification guide to mammals of the region. It covers - in surprising detail - some 120 mammals, from the smallest (bats, sengis and shrews) to the largest, such as elephant, lion and rhinoceros, as well as marine species, such as seals, dolphins and whales. Authoritative and colourfully illustrated, this guide offers concise information on key ID pointers, similar species, habitat, behaviour, diet, reproduction, longevity, calls, occurrence and measurements. Clear images of each animal, distribution maps, silhouettes indicating size relative to humans and illustrations of tracks and droppings make this a must-have book for tourists and nature-lovers alike.

4.0 out of 5 stars A really handy guide 5 Oct. 2013
By Jan
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have just come back from a safari where I found this guide really useful. It is fairly slim and light so I could easily carry it on safari drives. It has helpful comparisons of sizes and weights of animals - excellent when trying to distinguish between different antelope. It even has pages of footprint comparisons and, surprisingly useful, dung comparisons!
I would definitely recommend this to anyone going on their first trip to look at south african wildlife.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best one I own! 24 Aug. 2015
By 8x1
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good! I own and use several Southern African wild life books, this is now the only mammal one I will take! It is so easy to use, all info on one page, not any of this turn to page xxx see plat 324.5a rubbish! okk its not incredibly in depth but carries all info wanted for a field ID and some facts like behaviors, habitat, other names and gestation etc BUT one of the best bits is the silhouette sizeing, a silhouette of the critter next to that of a man or arm or hand, brilliant!
I have been on numerous self drive safaris in South Africa and Zimbabwe and this will be our new constant companion!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great photos for easy recognition 21 Nov. 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this for our recent safari in Botswana. It covered every mammal we saw and makes it easier to identify the many photos we took. I prefer photographs to drawings as I find the quality of some guide book drawing to be so poor you cannot identify things properly. This guide book is small enough to carry around and the photos make it easy to use.
