About this book

This is the first photographic field guide to the larger mammals of one of the most fascinating regions in the world. Stunning colour photography depicts more than 100 species found in a region spanning from Morocco in the west to Iran and the Arabian Peninsula in the east. All major families are represented, with mammals from the diminutive Least Weasel to the impressive Asiatic Black Bear and including iconic species such as the Arabian Oryx and Arabian Leopard.

Information for each species includes a detailed description with key ID features, distribution, habitat and status, behaviour, diet and reproduction. An introduction provides useful background on regional geography and vegetation.
