Many Faces of Bats Coffee Mug
Fiona Reid's "The Many Faces of Bats" original art of 89 different bats on a ceramic mug.
Fiona Reid's interest in wild mammals started at about age four, when she found a den of foxes near her home in Oxfordshire, England. This interest blossomed into a love of all fauna and flora worldwide. Fiona has a BA degree in biology from Cambridge University and an MSc in Animal Behaviour from SUNY at Stony Brook, New York. She has written and/or illustrated more than a dozen books on mammals, including: A field guide to the mammals of Central America and southeast Mexico (Oxford University Press) and a Peterson Field Guide to Mammals of North America (Houghton-Mifflin). For these two books which she both authored and illustrated, she captured and drew from life almost all the bats and small rodents. She also illustrated The Golden Guide to Bats of the World, Bats of Papua New Guinea, and Mammals of the Neotropics (volumes 1-3), and she coauthored and partially illustrated Wildlife of Costa Rica. Fiona also co-authored and illustrated Bats of Trinidad and Tobago, published in 2016. Fiona has worked part-time as an eco-tourist guide for 31 years, leading trips to numerous destinations worldwide. She has co-led tours for Bat Conservation International and the Organization for Bat Conservation, taking groups to Trinidad and Tobago, Africa, Australia, Brazil, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, and Madagascar to study bats and other mammals. She holds the distinction of having captured and painted from life more species
