Flattened Fauna, Revised: A Field Guide to Common Animals of Roads, Streets, and Highwaysby Roger M. Knutson
Are you among the millions of people whose only opportunity to observe wildlife comes after it has been run over and pressed into a patty by big rigs, then desiccated by the elements until even flies don't recognize it? This is the field guide for you! FLATTENED FAUNA fills an important gap in our natural history knowledge and fosters a heightened respect for the ecology of the paved environment.Reviews“Knutson. . . might just be to roadkill what Brett Favre is to football flinging.”—Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Loved this book! Great for those with a slightly skewed sense of humor. Uses outlines to illustrate common flattened fauna for quick identification at reasonable street and rural highway speeds. Actually works quite well. Descriptions are remarkably accurate. Great for long (or short) road trips. Wonderful gift for biology and natural science majors or anyone who frequently uses field guides - they'll appreciate the sendup immediately! Goes well with 'What Bird Did That', as well as with any of the Peterson guidebooks.
