    Jerome:

    I suggest that you add the "SCI Record Book of Trophy Animals, African edition," to your list, and right up at the top.

    Not only will you find the most complete natural history text anywhere for every African game animal and its various subspecies, but there also are maps and descriptions showing where these animals are found, photos of the largest specimens taken by SCI members, and lists of where, when and with whom the best trophies were taken.

    Rowland Ward's "Records of Big Game" and the others on your list are good references, but the SCI book is best. You can buy it in a hard copy or on-line, too.

    Default Behavior Guide to African Mammals

    Hi Redsunrise,

    I would recommend the following book. The BEHAVIOR GUIDE to AFRICAN MAMMALS by Richard Despard Estes. This book is printed in the USA by A WAKE FOREST STUDUIM BOOKs ( WFS ). This book covers tribal traits, distribution, geology, social organization, activity, postures and locomotion, social behavior, reproduction, parent offspring behavior and anti predator behavior.

    I learned a lot from it and I am sure you will to.
