This book introduces children to the mammals of Sri Lanka. It initially describes what a mammal is, and then discusses how they feed, where they live and where they are found in Sri Lanka. Selected mammals are described in detail and a list is provided of the mammals endemic to Sri Lanka. The book also discusses various threats to mammals in Sri Lanka and the ways in which they are protected from these threats. Dr. Miththapala has managed to present technical and/or scientific information in simple language, so that the contents can be understood easily by the target audience (i.e., children).
