East Africa comprises a range of habitats that provide living space for more than 360 diverse species of mammal. These vary in size from the massive elephant to the tiniest bats, shrews and mice. This compact guide covers all of the common and some of the less common mammal species of the region.
For each species it offers:
• key identification features, behaviour, diet, breeding biology, occurrence and size
• clear, full-colour photographs
• track illustrations
• silhouettes to indicate size relative to human figure
• distribution map
A section on droppings/dung of many of the animals, as well a chart of comparative spoor, conclude the book. Compact and easy-to-use, this is the ideal companion for both regulars and visitors to the region.
