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.

I've used this book on many trips and I've always been impressed by the ease of use. I really like the key, the illustrations are first class, and the descriptions are in great depth. Highly recommended
Just the book I was looking for. I use it with my kids for their school projects and take it with me when I go bush. heaps of info and great illustrations, I didn't know Australia had so many amazing animals.
