An indispensable guide to Australia's fascinating monotremes, marsupials, and placental mammals. This book, the third in the Cronin's Key Guide series, is packed with information about the behavior, development, food, and habitat of Australia's remarkable mammals. Each entry fully describes a species and its way of life; it even includes clues for finding certain obscure, often nocturnal, creatures by the telltale traces they leave behind. Colorfully illustrated throughout with detailed artwork and with maps showing where each animal occurs, this is a handy family reference or a perfect guide for the bushwalker or traveler.
