Summary

A compact, easy-to-use mammal identification guide for any nature watcher on a visit to Sri Lanka. More than forty species are described here in detail, from the Grey Slender Loris to the Giant Squirrel and the Fishing Cat. All of these animals are clearly illustrated in a collection of specially commissioned color photographs. With more than 130 full-color photographs, a regional distribution map, and handy tips on the best localities for spotting animals.

Illustrated with clear color photography and brief but authoritative descriptions, the Pocket Photo Guides highlight the species of animals from each region that the traveler is most likely to see, as well as those that are truly endemic (only to be seen in that country or region) or special rarities. The genuine pocket size allow the books to be carried around on trips and excursions and will take up minimal rucksack and suitcase space.
