About this book

This guide to the mammals of Botswana offers a detailed roundup of more than 80 animals – with maps, travel information and a photographic field guide in a single, handy volume. It covers the six major mammal groups: non-ruminants, ruminants, carnivores, non-carnivorous small mammals, rodents and shrews, and bats – in colour-coded sections for quick reference, and with animal names in seven languages.

An initial section examines mammal anatomy, physiology and behaviour, supported by photographs and illustrations and containing fascinating information on skull muscles, dentition, locomotion, senses, reproduction, digestion and thermoregulation. The field guide section treats one animal per page, with interesting text about their habits, behaviour, communication, social structures, etc. supported by photographs, distribution maps, and images of skulls, horns, tracks and droppings to ensure quick and easy ID. Pictorial keys at the start of each mammal group help readers navigate within the section.

Packed with interesting facts, photographs and maps, this is an essential guide to Botswana's rich mammal legacy.
