About this book

This book provides a comprehensive, detailed, evidence-based review of the seven animals officially described as 'dangerous' by the professional association of Field Guides in South Africa. To this number the authors have added crocodiles. The text embraces the anatomical, physiological and behavioural aspects of the animals and aims to provide such up-to-date and evidence-based information as is available at the time of writing.

It was developed in part for apprentice guides studying so-called dangerous game who might need a concise yet thorough, evidence-based learning tool to supplement their lectures. The decision to limit the book to 'dangerous game' was mainly due to the fact that most visitors to the bush, when asked by their guide what they most wished to see, give the name of one of these animals. This is notwithstanding the enthusiasm of all guides to interest their guests in every aspect of the bush and not limit their exposure to the large and/or dangerous species. Describing and discussing the key features of each animal within one volume makes this valuable to all users, whether used in the bush, for study or general interest. It should be borne in mind that, with some rare exceptions of ill-luck, almost everything you meet in the bush need not actually be dangerous for those who are sensible, prepared and educated. But it is vital to remember that we, the visitors, professionals and guests, are the interlopers. We are on their turf.

The authors are two qualified field guides who have travelled through the African Bush both in vehicles and on foot for over 25 years. As well as qualifying to lead parties on foot in dangerous game areas they have spent a considerable period of time teaching apprentice guides at a well-known guiding school in South Africa.
