Product Description

Amazon Review

Using as a reference point a creature we're all familiar with--ourselves!--this photo-packed guide explores the mammalian world, including anatomy, evolution, breeding, habits and behaviours. Youngsters are introduced to the taxonomic framework, learning that while cats, monkeys and hamsters, share common ground, each possesses unique, species- defining features. A dizzying array of adaptive strategies are explored, including the hedgehog's 5,000 spines and the baby kangaroo's "epic journey to the pouch". Discover the bizarre duck-billed platypus (an early specimen was believed to be a hoax), along with pangolins, muntjacs and leaf-nosed bats. Detailed colour illustrations show the development of newborn mice and kittens, what the inside of a molehill looks like and how a chincilla cleans its fur. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
