This is the only comprehensive guide to identifying the 11 amphibians, 22 reptiles, 44 mammals, 15 marine mammals, 173 birds and 61 seabirds that inhabit Tasmania and its territorial waters, including Macquarie Island, and the 32 endemic Tasmanian species that occur nowhere else. 

Detailed and user-friendly accounts of each species include physical descriptions, distribution maps, details on where and when to see each species, preferred habitat types, plus notes on subspecies, conservation status and ecology. Over 1100 images help identify each species.

Author, Angus McNab MSc (Zoology), has always been fascinated by reptiles and amphibians and enthusiastic university friends broadened his interests to mammals and birds. With over twelve years’ experience as a wildlife ecologist, Angus has extensive knowledge of Tasmanian wildlife.
