Excellent field guide!!!

I've been doing alot of research on illustrating various Australian Mammals and found that this book is the most compacted of all reference materials. You get the whole animal to view. So many times when cross researching you find yourself struggling to figure out what the animals feet really looks like, this book I find is really helpful.

In fact, it is the only real field guide to the mammals of Australia. The Australian museum book is great of course, but is a reference book for home, whereas this is the perfect field guide. The drawings are pretty well spot and capture the look of the animal in the field quite well. Also, very recent. Great book, and good value.
