This book has all the usual Stuart features, and is very well done. It is very large at some 900 pages I think. Shows the whole of Africa and the area where the species is marked in. If there are several closely related species, these are shown on the same map in different colours

This book has all the usual Stuart features, and is very well done. If there are several closely related species, these are shown on the same map in different colours. Areas of overlap in species range is shown in a different colour. Photos - usually just general photos of the animal - may have male and female where they differ ( in some of there other books there are a few more photos, sometimes of mothers with young, sometimes where there are important identification features that need a detail shown.

Back in 1991, Chris and Tilde Stuart’s Field Guide to the Mammals of Southern Africa was the first field guide I ever brought. I have several guides to some or all of southern Africa but none has this level of mammalian coverage for any of the countries in southern Africa, let alone the whole region. Nor are any as useful. The book covers the lower third of the continent, south from Angola, Zambia, Malawi and Mozambique.

Stuarts' Field Guide to the Larger Mammals of Africa – a classic and widely acclaimed work – concentrates on the more visible and easily distinguished larger species, as well as some of the more frequently seen smaller mammals.

A beautifully illustrated guide to the larger and more frequently encountered African mammals. Individual accounts with range maps for over 200 species provide information on each animal's description, distribution status, habitat, behavior, food, and reproduction. Excellent coverage of the larger, more familiar species, plus limited coverage of some smaller African mammals including hedgehogs, hyraxes, hares and rabbits, and squirrels. Exceptionally well illustrated with over 400 color photos, b/w footprint diagrams, maps, indexes to English, German, and French common names.
I saw this book in Kenya when I was on safari. Our driver/guide was using it as his guide. When I returned home, I decided to search for it on Amazon.com. I found it for an amazing price. Now I have a fantastic resource to use to find, locate, and remember all the animals we viewed on safari in Kenya and Tanzania.
I bought this book a long time ago when it was first published because I was looking for some information on primates and carnivores of Africa. When I found this book I wasn't disappointed! There are full colour, clear pictures on every page on primates, hoofed mammals, the elephant, carnivores, the aardvark, hyraxes, pangolins, rabbits and hares and the rodents. The carnivore section is the best but they all show original photographs and accounts with distribution, status, behaviour, a map and breeding habits of each animal or a group of them. Every picture has a caption saying where the photo was taken or a special feature of that mammal that makes it different from any other. There are no negative comments I can make on this book because it is clear, informative and with lots of pictures which can help your studies whether you're going to Africa or not!
