About this book

More comprehensive than a field guide yet more accessible than an academic text, this authoritative reference answers fundamental questions about mammals and birds in the African bush such as How does an elephant's trunk work? Is the cheetah really the fastest animal? and Why do some bird species sit on animals? Photographs, charts, and tables accompany the question-and-answer format, making this all-in-one guide user-friendly for both wildlife enthusiasts and professionals.

Trevor Carnaby has been a professional field guide for more than 10 years. He has worked as a head guide, environmental manager, and guide trainer in the Sabi Sands Game Reserve and is now a specialist guide based in northern Botswana.
