This is the essential 'in-car' book for any road traveller in Australia. With about one million kilometres of road, anyone travelling them is, sadly, very likely to see or cause roadkill - certainly millions of small bugs will be hit.

This book provides an overview of the types of roadkill, hints on what to do with them, how to clean bugs off the car and an eclectic mix of other information - from road safety to recipes.
In addition the book gives an unusual insight into the many aspects of Australia's very special fauna, albeit in a somewhat macabre way.
More than 200 photographs of roadkill all some identification and an excellent guide on how to avoid and observe roadkill and who to send interesting specimens to.
Wild Discovery Guides Australian Wildlife Roadkill was shortlisted for the 2007 Whitley Award for significant contribution to Australian zoology.
