The DK Guide to Mammals is a remarkable and eye-opening exploration of the world of mammals - their habitats, behaviour, anatomy, intelligence, and much more. Breathtaking close-up photography and graphic illustrations reveal both the wild drama and the hidden details that make up the lives of these fascinating creatures, while larger, wide-angle scenes draw the reader into their natural environments.

- Learn how to translate the facial expressions and the complex communicative gestures of a chimpanzee.
- Witness a leopard killing its prey and see how it stores its catch high up in trees, safe from scavenging hyenas and jackals.
- Dramatic photographs, together with special digital images and artworks, create an awe-inspiring insight into the world of the creatures in this highly diverse and spectacular animal group.
