Greater southern Africa has a wealth of mammal species, almost 400 - all of which are covered in this fully revised, comprehensive field guide. While the term 'African mammals' might conjure up the more celebrated species, such as elephant, lion, leopard or rhino, it is in fact the smaller animals - such as shrews, genets and bats - that comprise the bulk of the region's mammal species. Often overlooked but included here, are also the marine mammals - seals, whales and dolphins - that are found in our oceans. This new edition of Field Guide to Mammals of Southern Africa has been expanded to include species found in Angola, Zambia and Malawi. It has also been extensively revised to include the most recent research in terms of new findings and new taxonomy. Up-to-date information, revised distribution maps and new images (where available) have been combined in a modern, full-colour layout. Colour coding is used to group families, and spoor and size icons are included for quick reference with each mammal entry. Skull photographs have been grouped at the back of the book for easy comparison. In addition to detailed descriptions of each species, the text offers insight into key identification characters, typical behaviour, preferred habitat, food choice, reproduction and longevity.

Of the world's 4,000 to 4,500 mammal species, about 1,100 occur in Africa.

In all, over 400 color photographs, combined with concise, pertinent information highlighting the diagnostic features of each species, provide a comprehensive source of information on each mammal. The latest information has been incorporated and the distribution maps have been revised to reflect the most up-to-date habitat and distribution patterns for each species. A new feature is the inclusion of the mammals' skulls, grouped together at the back of the book. To aid the reader, color-coding and symbols indicating the habitat and activity period serve as a quick reference to the various mammal groups.
