Featuring all the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, and arthropods that one is likely to see on a trip to the rainforest (as well as those secretive creatures such as the jaguar that are difficult to glimpse). The Wildlife of Costa Rica is the guide to have when encountering trogons, tapirs, and tarantulas. In addition to providing details for identifying animals along with interesting facts about their natural history, this guide offers tips for seeing them in the wild. Costa Rica, a peaceful nation with many and diverse animal species, is one of the best places in the world for wildlife watching and nature study. It has an excellent system of national parks and reserves, a wide choice of ecolodges, and many professionally trained tourist guides. It is possible to leave the capital city of San Jose and, just a few hours later, visit a high-elevation cloud forest, dense rainforest, savanna-like plain, or coastal habitat, each with a unique collection of animal species.

The Wildlife of Costa Rica is an indispensable companion for visitors to the beautiful natural areas of Costa Rica. This full-colour field guide features all the mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians and arthropods that one is likely to see in Costa Rica's rainforests, cloud forests, plains and coasts. Providing the best introduction to the country's amazing diversity of wildlife, this lightweight guide includes details for identifying animals as well as a wealth of natural history information. It is the first general field guide to this deservedly popular neotropical tourist destination.
