Swaziland's Mammals

A total of 131 species of mammals has been recorded from Swaziland, of which 43 species are rodents, shrews and bats. For much of the last century, Swaziland's large mammal populations suffered at the hands of hunters and poachers. All species declined dramatically, many to extinction. A number of species have been reintroduced into the country's protected areas. Although abundant, most of the country's small mammals are difficult to locate or observe. However, some species of bat, such as the free-tailed bats, roosting in roofs of houses, and horseshoe bats, roosting in large numbers in caves and abandoned mines can be readily approached.
