Mammals include the largest animals in the world, in the sea, in the air and on land: The bison is the largest land mammal in Canada. It can weigh almost as much as a small car. Humpback whales sing long, complicated songs. They use these songs to communicate with other humpbacks. A muskrat can stay underwater for about 15 minutes. It can swim the length of a football field before it comes up for air. Bats eat while they are flying. A bat can eat up to 1000 insects in a night.

This authoritative, full-colour work includes all 216 mammal species found in Canada. Each mammal order and family is described in general detail, followed by more comprehensive descriptions of individual species (including physical identification, ecology and habitat, reproduction, general habits and behavior, scat and tracks).The Introduction places Canadian mammals in their world context, and explores issues relating to taxonomy, distribution, names and measurement.Particularly useful features of the book are the sections explaining to readers how to identify mammals by their remains. (tracks, scratch marks on trees, scat, etc).Each species is illustrated in colour and some show both male and female if there are significant differences. Seasonal pelage changes, colour morphs and major subspecies are also illustrated. Over 220 black and white illustrations include drawings of skulls (three views - dorsal, ventral, and lateral), with mandibles. All of the species that leave tracks have tracks and trackways illustrated to aid in identification. Over 215 range maps show the distribution of each species across Canada and the world.

Excerpt: This is a list of the mammal species recorded in South America. South America's terrestrial mammals fall into three distinct groups. The marsupials and xenarthrans are 'old-timers', their ancestors having been present on the continent since at least the very early Cenozoic Era. During the early Cenozoic, South America's only land connection was to Antarctica, so it was effectively cut off from most of the world; as the fragments of Gondwana continued to separate, this connection was lost, leaving South America an island continent. Caviomorph rodents and monkeys arrived as 'waif dispersers' by rafting across the Atlantic from Africa by the Oligocene epoch or slightly earlier, 25 million or more years ago. All the remaining nonflying mammals of...
