An exotic setting of tropical flowers, trailing plants and massive trees is the exciting background to the complex and varied animal life found in South East Asia. Beautiful butterflies, flying reptiles, apes, monkeys and magnificent birds are all native to this part of the world.
This volume is rich in unusual colour photographs showing the amazing animals of the rain forest, mangrove swamp, steppe and desert – acrobatic gibbons, radiant pheasants, deadly cobras, predatory tigers, man-eating crocodiles and many more. There are also many rare species which inhabit this region, such as the mud-skipper, a fish which can live both in and out of water, the sun bear which feeds on ants and termites, and a monkey and a mongoose that feed almost exclusively on crabs.
From this part of the world comes the legend of the Yeti or Abominable Snowman. South East Asia is one of the most diverse and exciting of the wild-life regions, and this magnificently illustrated book does it full justice.
