This New Zealand classic has been constantly in print since it was first published in 1947. By means of clear drawings, simple descriptions and brief information on our native animals, ranging from the simplest invertebrates through to mammals, this book gives naturalists a unique introduction to New Zealand's fauna.
In this new edition the text has been updated and Powell's beautiful illustrations have been re-scanned from the originals, resulting in high quality reproductions. In addition, a Māori name is now given for almost every animal.
Powell's Native Animals provides a simple ready reference for identifying common New Zealand animals.
