Synopsis

Exploring Nature: Incredible Elephants A Fascinating Guide to the Gentle Giants That Dominate Africa and Asia, Shown in More Than 190 Pictures by Barbara Taylor

An amazing insight into the lives of these intelligent and mysterious creatures, this title helps you learn how elephant bodies work, from the many uses of their versatile trunks and big flapping ears, to their 'conveyor-belt' teeth and mighty tusks. It comes with stunning images by top wildlife photographers, as well as superb illustrations and detailed cross-sections. Special picture sequences zoom in closer, to focus on topics such as the dominance of the bull elephant, and trained elephants that work with human beings. It is perfect for home and classroom use by 8- to 12-year-olds, supplementing school studies on life processes in the natural world. Elephants are the largest and heaviest creatures on land. You can discover the complex way in which these remarkable mammals communicate with each other, and examine the differences between the African and Asian species. There are sections on elephant senses, temperature control, migration, feeding, courtship, growing up, prehistoric ancestors, interaction with humans, conservation and much more. Five special focus spreads allow you to observe particular aspects of these animals' lives, such as the birth of a calf and their love of water.
