Mammals of Madagascar: A Complete Guide
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.

If you are a natural-history buff who dreams of seeing this amazing island, Garbutt just might tip you off the couch and stir you into action.' * BBC Wildlife (May 2007) *
