A comprehensive, and beautifully designed, easy-to-use guide to most of the common species you are likely to find in Hong Kong, this book is the definitive photographic reference guide for nature enthusiasts. Similar in size and scope to the previously published Bugs of Hong Kong, this 356 page book is large enough to cover most common species, but remains a practical field guide that you can take on walks. Focusing on Hong Kong creatures makes it quick and easy for the reader to accurately identify what they have found, and highlights for many animals shows whether they can be found nearer to home in the city, villages, or in urban parks. Put simply, this is the essential photographic guide to the wildlife of Hong Kong. Included in this 356 page moleskin size book you will find:
