South-East Asia is one of the richest parts of the world in terms of mammals, with species new to science still being described on a regular basis. This guide provides a comprehensive overview of the wide variety of wildlife to be found in South-East Asia. Over 192 key species are described in the book, and each description is supported by a clear colour photograph taken where possible in the mammal's natural habitat. The guide covers mainland South-East Asia, including Myanmar through Thailand, Laos, Vietnam and Cambodia, and south to Malaysia. The mammals featured embrace spectacular species like the Asian Elephant, Sumatran Tiger and Orang-utan, as well as smaller animals such as the Sumatran Shrew-Mouse, Flying Lemur and a variety of bats. A detailed account of each species explains identification characteristics, habitat and behaviour.
