About this title:


This title is a reduced format field guide adaptation of the highly acclaimed Pica Press book Mammals of Madagascar. Madagascar has a unique mammal fauna. Of the 184 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. As the only mammal taxa present on Madagascar, 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.

About the Author: Nick Garbutt is Britain's best-known and most popular authority on Madagascar's wildlife. He has observed almost all of Madagascar's mammals in the wild - a claim only a handful of others can make. He is also a talented artist and wildlife photographer.
