Collins Field Guide: Mammals of Britain and Europe

Badgerland online shop

448 page hardback from HarperCollins Natural History

Another great field guide!

This book covers every species of mammal that occur in Europe and in the seas around it, over 230 species, in detail. The text not only covers the vital information for identifying the differences between a rabbit and a hare, a red deer and a roe deer, or a killer whale and a long-finned pilot whale, or how to tell a red fox print from a dog, but also provides all the biological and taxonomic information you need to positively identify mammals. It also gives readers an insight into how the animals live, how crested porcupine adults keep their young warm crushing them between the parents, how many baby seals actually moult while still inside the mother and why the red fox can cause such destruction.

A great field guide for experts and amateurs alike - Detailed colour plates and species descriptions make identification almost as easy as it can be. This is (as well as the other Collins Field Guides) a good choice for all people interested in European animals.
