Book Review-National Audubon Society Mammals

Book Review- National Audubon Society Mammals
10/11/14

John O. Whitaker, Jr., National Audubon Society Field Guide to North American Mammals, (New York: Chanticleer Press, Inc., 1996, 2nd edition).

This is a fantastic field guide to mammals.  It has a lot of information and good photos, and I have used it as a source for a lot of my articles (posts).  The photos look realistic,like the photos were taken in the wild, and each family of animals has a seperate introduction, so you can see how all the animals in that group are similar.  The information onthe individual species give helpful info on how to identify these animals, the kind of tracks they make, other signs they leave, a range map, and their habitat.  All in all it is a good investment, and it often includes interesting facts about these animals that you might not know.  I got this book some time ago, so there might be a newer edition.
