About this book

This is a slimmed down paperback edition of Garbutt's `Mammals of Madagascar' published in 1999.

A reduced format field guide adaptation of the highly acclaimed Mammals of Madagascar. Madagascar has a unique mammal fauna. Of the 123 species, at least 103 are found nowhere else on earth. It is best known for its 33 species of lemur, but there are also a great variety of tenrecs, bats, rodents, viverrids and mongooses. These groups have demonstrated remarkable adaptive radiation, giving rise to some of the most remarkable species in the world, such as the witch-like Aye-aye, the elegant Fosa and the bizarre Hedgehog Tenrecs. Anyone interested in mammals will hope to explore Madagascar's extraordinary assemblage of species, and this is the perfect identification guide for the island.
