The Kingdon Pocket Guide to African Mammals – the famous classic identification guide to African mammals

The Kingdon Field Guide to African Mammals is the standard identification guide to all African land mammals. This new pocket guide is an adaptation of the original into a standard field-guide format. The greatly condensed text focuses on essential information such as identification and distribution, while the author’s superb illustrations have been rearranged into an easy-to-use plate format and placed opposite the text. Complex and more obscure groups like the bats and certain rodent families are summarised by genera. This is a practical, lightweight guide, ideal for use in the field and more suitable than the original for the lay person and tourist on safari. “Excellent, comprehensive field guide so you can tell your puku from your lechwe.” BBC Wildlife
