About this book

This concise guide will assist the amateur naturalists and professionals in the field identification of all 138 large mammal species found within Thailand. Every species has been painstakingly illustrated by two of the nation's outstanding wildlife artists, Komol Komolphalin and Mongkol Wongkalasin.

Each species description contains a colour illustration, species name in English, Latin and Thai, distribution map, average size, and notes on identification, behaviour, voice, habitat and conservation status.

One section is devoted to the tracks of terrestrial mammals.
