This is a new flexibound edition of the only complete guide to Egypt's mammals. From gazelle to gerbil, from hyena to hyrax, every mammal species recorded in Egypt is described here in detail, with identification features, status, habitat, and habits, and with comparisons to similar species. A map is provided for each species, clearly showing its current, and in some cases historical, range. Each species is meticulously illustrated - the bats and sea mammals in detailed black-and-white illustrations, all other species in scientifically accurate color plates. Additional vignettes emphasize aspects of mammal behavior, cover the minutiae of such features as the nose-leafs and ear structure of bats, and illustrate the tracks and trails of the more commonly encountered mammals. This is an indispensable reference work for anyone interested in the wildlife of Egypt, from professional biologists to desert travelers and interested amateurs. And as it describes and illustrates every whale and dolphin species recorded in Egyptian waters, including the Red Sea, it will be of special significance to anyone diving in the region.
