Retiring Beasts. "A Field Guide to the Mammals of Australia", by Peter Menkhorst and Frank Knight. [review]
How do you tell a kangaroo from a wallaby, a seal from a sea lion? If you know the answer to those questions, then how do you tell a mountain pygmy possum from an eastern pygmy possum, or a hairy-footed dunnart from a lesser hairyfooted dunnart? You need a guide to Australian mammals. Peter Menkhorst and Frank Knight have given us what will undoubtedly become the field guide of choice for anyone interested in Australian mammals.
