About the book


EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT AWESOME INDIAN MAMMALS

BUT DIDN’T KNOW WHOM TO ASK!

What is the rhino’s horn made of? | How do deer and langurs help one another in the forest? | Why do elephants and monkeys suffer the most in captivity? | Where will you find a squirrel that flies? | Which Indian mammal has arms one and a half times the length of its legs? | Covering these and many more fascinating facts, this handy wildlife guide features more than 400 mammal species in India, from tigers, elephants and rhinos to monkeys, rodents and bats. Mammals fascinate us, probably because we belong to that order! That’s why, along with expertly researched information about where these animals are found, and how they live, communicate and behave, conservationist and photographer Vivek Menon shares insider notes from his adventures in the wild. Key identification pointers and stunning colour photographs help you recognize different mammals easily, making The Secret Lives of Mammals both a ready reckoner as well as a field guide for animal lovers.

Inside, you will find:

* More than 400 species of mammals from land and water

* More than 250 full-colour photos

* Nearly 100 distribution maps

* Full index with common, Latin and local names

* Amazing on-site experiences
