About this book

Known throughout the world for his fight to save the tiger, Thapar here turns his attention to the subcontinent at large to explore the diverse wildlife of this vast region. Written to accompany the BBC TV series, this book follows some wonderful animals - the snow leopards, the one-horned rhino, the tigers, monkeys, and flying lizards - many of them now endangered. The video includes unique footage of a dazzling array of creatures from rhino to flying lizard and gibbon to great whale.
