Could you possibly look at adding the Afrikaans names to the app as well as a gallery view to easily help when searching for a particular animal.... The 2nd edition contains 21 new accounts of species, including 9 new species of bats that were not found in the 1st edition. A Field Guide to Rocky Mountain Wildflowers. While a bit overwhelming in its detail and exactness, I still would recommend this book to anyone just starting out and an experienced tracker alike.

The characteristic of bats that affect most people (attitudes and actions), other than their consumption of insects, is that bats are occasionally vectors of rabies. When they sleep they conserve energy by falling into a torper. Aardvarks occur in a variety of habitats including grassy plains, woodland and savannah. I do note, however, that 3 rhinos are found in the EDGE's top 11 choices; I have 3 rhinos within my top 14.

Young animals are usually quite hairy, while adults may be mostly hairless on the back. Great book for comprehensive, strict and technical descriptions of the plants. This guide also utilizes arrows to point out the hard to describe or important field marks much like the Peterson Field Guides did with birds. The smaller members of the family go into a kind of frenzy of fighting (males) and mating in early spring, the couple staying physically coupled and active for several hours, then within the month all males die of stress-related disorders while the female lives on to raise her brood.
