Synopsis

The Children's Encyclopedia of Animals: Life in the Wild Discover the Amazing World of Big Cats, Birds of Prey, Crocodiles, Elephants, Insects, Spiders, Snakes, Wild Dogs, and Many Others by Michael Chinery

This title helps you discover the amazing world of big cats, birds of prey, crocodiles, elephants, insects, spiders, snakes, wild dogs, and many others. You can explore animal habitats around the world, from the frozen home of polar bears, to the Namib Desert where horses have adapted to the hot, dry climate. You can learn about the specialized physical abilities of wild animals and their natural survival strategies. You can study the quest for food and the different ways in which insects, spiders, birds, fish, reptiles and mammals give birth and raise their young. 1500 stunning photographs and illustrations include action images and anatomical inside-view diagrams. It is the ideal reference book for 8- to 12-year-olds for home or school use. You can find out how animals survive in wild and dangerous conditions, hunt for food, sense and escape from threats, and communicate with each other. Informative images bring to life the ordered world of an ant's nest, get up close to a leopard's distinctive spots, and capture the drama of schools of hammerhead sharks. From the swamps of Australasia to the icy extremes of North America, and from the seas of the South Pacific to the forests of southern Asia, this stunning book takes you on a dramatic visual journey into the animal kingdom.
