Synopsis

The identification of mammal skulls is the subject of this addition to the quirky Quick ID guide series. It features the skulls of more than 120 small and large mammals likely to be encountered in the wild in southern and East Africa - from easily recognisable species such as elephant, hippo, rhino, baboons, hyaenas and antelope, to the more challenging family groups: dogs, cats, equids, pigs, civets and genets, mongooses, rats and mice, bats, sengis, and the like. Each entry features: • Close-up photographs showing the entire skull, teeth and, where available, upper and lower jaws • Pointers to diagnostic features • Average measurement for skull length • Short description highlighting main features of each skull and tooth structure • Dental formula for teeth in upper and lower jaws A brief introduction, with labelled photographs, covers anatomy as well as dentition; and a quick-reference photographic key to the main animal groups appears on the inside front cover.
