This compact field guide to the identification of Southern African mammals based on their spoor, droppings and skulls has been accepted as the standard work on the subject.
This edition offers up-to-date information on identification through signs. This edition provides new illustrations for a number of species. It also features illustrations of skulls for all of the carnivores.
The 8-page section of comparative spoor is still a feature, updated with the most recent information available. It includes distribution maps (88 in all) and full-colour photographs (some 150) of each species within its habitat.
