About this book

With historical facts and anecdotes from Ancient Egypt, Roman times, through recent historical times to present, this is not a biology book nor a guidebook to African animals, but a miscellany of information from the bizarre to the biological, factual, historical, mythical, and romantic. Containing the information not found in other books it forms a standard reference work in popular style of facts about African mammals plus crocodile and ostrich, researched from a wide variety of early and modern works for natural historians, biologists, safari goers, and quiz enthusiasts, ages 16 onwards.
