Sri Lanka has one of the highest species densities in the world including a number of endemic plants and animals. Unusually for a moderately sized island it also has large mammals. It is one of the best places in the world for seeing and photographing Blue Whales, Sperm Whales, Leopards, Asian Elephants and Sloth Bears, dubbed Sri Lankas 'Big Five'. It also has the largest annually recurring 'gathering' of wild elephants of anywhere in the word, a truly spectacular event. This book brings together all of Sri Lankas top wildlife stories, many of which have come to light only in the last few years. Further chapters detail wildlife watching opportunities for primates, birds, reptiles, turtles, butterflies and dragonflies, a description of the parks and reserves by habitat type, and a wildlife watching calendar to help plan a trip. Throughout the book there are extracts from 'A Naturalist's Journal', which in the form of a first person commentary take readers to specific habitats in search of the animals to be found there.
