Our natural heritage
Laos is home to the world's biggest species of wild cattle: the gaur, which can weigh as much as a rhinoceros. The world's biggest moth lives here, as do the elusive clouded leopard, and the endangered Irrawaddy dolphin.
This readable, well-illustrated introduction to our varied animals introduces simple scientific and environmental ideas, while encouraging readers to protect Laos's natural heritage.
