The Brilliant Book of Animal Bones

The Brilliant Book of Animal Bones

Author: Anna Claybourne Format: Hardback Release Date: 22/10/2020

Get up close to the biggest, smallest and most amazing animal bones on the planet! From giraffes and dinosaurs to owls and crocodiles, find out what makes every skeleton unique. How is a human skeleton different from an animal one? What are bones made from? Look inside human and animal bodies to see the shape of different bones and discover how they have evolved in different ways to help each animal survive, from a bird's light bones full of air spaces to help them fly to crocodile bones growing just under the skin that act as armour. Paleontologists who study animal fossils can sometimes determine a species from as little as just one bone! Fascinating fact panels give extra information about bones uses or record-breaking figures about size or strength. Become a bone detective and discover many surprising things that bones can tell us.

Explore the incredible ways evolution works, from the beginnings of life 3.5 billion years ago to the walking, talking super-apes better known as human beings. Amazing Evolution is filled with fascinating facts! - The Week Junior Evolution can be a difficult idea to wrap our brains around: it deals with random, unlikely events, combined with vast lengths of time too enormous to comprehend. But the evidence is all around us - in the fossils of long-dead creatures, and in our genes and the relationships between all living beings. Amazing Evolution shines a light on this incredible process, from the beginnings of life around 3.8 billion years ago, to the millions of different species alive today, including the moon-walking, talking apes with super-powerful brains - human beings! Filled with clear explanations, beautiful illustrations and fascinating facts about the planet's strangest and most spectacular creatures, Amazing Evolution will keep children (and adults, too!) enthralled for hours. Delve into the pages and learn what makes a fish a fish, why giraffes have such long necks and how all living things, from cabbages to tigers, are related!
