The Mammal Book Jaws, Paws, Claws and More ... by Barbara Taylor


The Mammal Book Jaws, Paws, Claws and More ... by Barbara Taylor

Mammals can be found all over the world, from the icy Arctic poles to the sweltering deserts, the sweeping savannahs and the deepest oceans. This book showcases the world's most fascinating mammals, from big cats and grizzly bears to monkeys, apes, rhinos, rabbits, armadillos, dolphins and bats. Readers will learn how this diverse group of animals has adapted to survive in so many different habitats. Using a new, dynamic format and sumptuous photographs, this book explores each mammal in the context of its habitat. Special features, such as flaps and pullouts, help the reader to get a sense of how the animal lives, its special characteristics and the factors that threaten its survival.
