Scatalog is a quick and quirky identification guide to animal dung or droppings. Each animal group among Southern African carnivores, primates, antelope, rats and mice, reptiles and birds is briefly introduced; but the main focus of this book is the photographs, mostly life-size. These images enable immediate identification of the animals responsible for the droppings.

To confirm identity, summary tables give details of average width, length and typical contents of droppings which are feathers, twigs, leaves, sand, etc. This should become a recommended reference for rangers and field guides in the region; and it will be of use to anyone with an interest in wildlife, and even to those who simply enjoy walking in the wild and observing the tracks and signs they encounter.
