This review is from: Life of Mammals (Hardcover)
This book is the best of the authors series.It deals with animal behaviour rather than animal species although animals are used as descriptions of particular types of animal behaviour.
The well written text is divided into 10 finely researched chapters each with their own particular stories and examples.
The 10 chapters cover a)animal design-as relating to environment b)insect hunters c)chiselers -animals with chisel shaped front teeth d) plant eaters e)meat eaters f)opportunists-animals that eat anything g)return to the water- animals living on land or in the sea h) tree dwellers i) social climbers -e.g. monkeys and j)food for thought-how animals may evolve.
The pictures are excellent and only a few cover 2 pages destroying their impact.Sources of photographs are now well laid out and easily identified.
A book to be recommended.
