Many terrestrial mammals communicate by use of smell and scent. However many vocalise too, and often spectacularly.

These recordings bring you the 'big' sounds of nature, those of wild animals in their natural habitats. From the great - lions, elephants, hippos - to the small - primates, squirrels, chipmunks and possums...

These recordings place the sounds of animals in the context of their environment. In some cases they are the feature, but more often they are an occasional part of the sonic landscape.
