Nature Now – Mammals of Kruger
This easy-to-read, fact-filled guide features over 80 mammal species found in the Kruger National Park, one of Africa’s most popular game-viewing destinations. Each account includes brief identification information – how to distinguish a nyala from a bushbuck, for example – and highlights the most interesting facts about the species. Did you know that leopards are more dangerous than lions, elephants use their trunks to snorkel, giraffes give birth standing up, and no two zebras have the same stripe pattern?
