Comments:

Steel balls
Good basic reference. Not an encyclopedia of antarctic fauna, but nice to have in hand when trying to identify seabirds you're likely to see.
MEGA FREEDY
I bought this book in preparation for a trip 'South' in December 1999/January 2000 and it was an extremely useful guide to wildlife in general but especially good for penguin information. The drawings by an ancestor of Robert F. Scott's are lifelike, and engaging art as well. The brief summaries of natural and exploration history are accessible and informative. If you are looking for a portable guide to peninsular wildlife get the book--you won't regret it.

This has got to be the single best guide to Antarctica's unusual wildlife. Everything is covered here, from Gentoo Penguins to Crab-Eater Seals (which don't actually eat crabs). Beautiful illustrations make it easy to identify birds & other animals while your out on the ice. If you're going to the White Continent, you'll want to stash this little book in your daypack. This book was useful when my husband & I visited the Antarctic peninsula, which we chronicle in our DVD "T&T's Real Travels in Antarctica" (also available on amazon.com).

We will take this with us to Antarctica as a reference .
Anayaron
I used this in Antarctica and found it perfect for wildlife viewing. It has size comparison charts for each animal, and useful, detailed text. It is also small and light enough to carry around in the freezing weather in Antarctica. Both this book and a trip to the white continent are highly recommended.
Risky Strong Dromedary
Hopefully, you are looking for this book because you are headed to Antarctica! If not, and you just want to learn about Antarctic wildlife, this is a great book to use either way. There's good information and good drawings to use in identifying animals.
CrazyDemon
The pictures and descriptions are extremely well done. This gives a very detailed description of wildlife in the Antaractica.
If you are visiting the Antarctic Peninsula and nearby islands, this guide is a good field guide to identifying, and learning about, the most common Antarctic fauna you will experience, including birds, mammals and cetaceans. (It is not a comprehensive guide for htose desiring in depth information and identification of every species.) José Kirchner
