Looking for...

Unread post by Guinea Pig » Wed Oct 15, 2008 6:26 am

I need some advice. Looking for a book on Insects of Southern Africa. Has to be English of course, has to make id of critters a breeze, if possible, photographs. Must be currently in print. Any suggestions?

I got hold of the book and went WOW! Definitely worth buying. Now I have something else to ID besides birds. :lol: Thanks for the advice.
