Wild Ways brings together all the latest studies of the behaviour of southern Africa's rich and accessible mammal fauna, describing not only what mammals do, but also the oftensurprising reasons why they do it, and covers species as diverse as fruit bats, pangolins, lions, rats and whales.
Well-established as an invaluable resource for visitors to parks and reserves, hikers, hunters, farmers and outdoor enthusiasts, this
classic guide has now been thoroughly updated and revised, has a fresh, lively design, and is packed with new and engrossing detail.
