Aardvark to Zebra - Questions and Answers Riette

This is a very informative book on mammals and also covers a few other animals (Ostrich, Crocodile, Leopard Tortoise)
The book provides info on each species in for the form of a question and answer, covering behaviour, diet, breeding etc.
The photos are also excellent.
It's quite expensive - I paid R700 for my copy (in the KNP). But imo it's well worth getting

You can

But firstly since it has been published, it's gone through some sort of peer review
So the info is more reliable than xyz comments on the net.

And also, as discussed in the other thread (on Kruger Birds), it's nice to have a printed book, especially when one is in the bush.

Don't know tbh.
I haven't seen the book you mention.
This book isn't by Joyce, so perhaps not? -O-

I agree
It's quite large and heavy.
So next time I come to SA, and Kruger, it wouldn't be worth while to put in the suitcase.
Makes interesting reading on our long winter nights
