Over 192 key species are included in the book, each description supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the mammal's natural habitat. This photographic guide covers all those mammals recorded from mainland SE Asia, from Myanmar through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia and south to Malaysia.
