  • I was lucky enough to spend 5 weeks in the charming land in 1990 and am delighted at the completeness of this book. When I went there in '90 only about 30 species of lemurs were known and since then many more have been discovered. This book details all of them and provide info. about the other fascinating mammals found there.

  • Why does anyone go to Madagascar? To see lemurs, of course. Well, this small, beautiful book describes every one of the more than 100 of them, with wonderful photos, and then tells you all about the other native malls - the bats, the tenrecs - the whole lot. What more could you want? (Actually, a book of the chameleons that was as wonderful).

  • Will revise my review when we return. We expect that this book will be very helpful. Appears to be very comprehensive.

  • Whether you a traveling in a guided group or as an individual this book is a necessity for any person travelling in Madagascar, covering all species of Lemurs and where they can be found.

  • Very comprehensive, including specific info about the creatures, and about the sites at which to observe the mammals. Maps. The bibliography is also extensive-and current.

  • Enough depth to cover everything, but really compelling pictures. There are some things we don't want to miss on our trip now.

  • This book was fairly helpful in reading up about the mammals once we were back in the hotel room in the evenings. It wasn't of much use in the field, which I had hoped it would be, but it did give detailed information after we had seen the animals in the park during the day.

    probably worth purchasing if you are going to Mada.

  • Ecotourists visiting Madagascar are really lucky.
    After the excellent Birds of the Indian Ocean Islands: Madagascar, Mauritius, Réunion, Rodrigues, Seychelles and the Comoros, an excellent, affordable field guide to mammals in now finally available!

    It's hard to know where to start praising this book, but perhaps most importantly, it really IS complete, describing all mammal species found in Madagascar.
    The species accounts are incredibly detailed, not only providing extensive info on each species' appearence, behaviour, habitat & distribution, but even telling you where to go to see each one!
    Of course excellent photographs (except for a few obscure rodents and bats) and very detailed range maps accompany each species as well.
    Additionally, there are highly informative chapters on the various habitats found in Madagascar, on conservation issues, and finally detailed descriptions of the country's top mammal-watching sites, with lists of the most important species to be expected, access, facilities, best season to visit...
    For those seriously interested, there is an incredibly long bibliography listing as well.

    If I really had to make one complaint about this book, it would be that the format is a bit too large to be convenient for carrying in the field. I wish it could be smaller and thicker, but this size may have been necessary to accomodate several impressive full-page sized photographs.
