About this book

Omits the smaller, seldom-seen mammals of the continent in favour of devoting more space to the larger species. Each species is covered in detail, its physical appearance, food and habitat preferences, reproduction and general behaviour are described. Colour photographs illustrate and aid in the identification of these mammals, and in-text illustrations are used to highlight certain features. Each account is accompanied by a map showing the distribution of the species.
