Wildlife Compendium of the World: Awe-Inspiring Animals from Every ContinentChronicle Books
From amphibians and reptiles to monotremes and pilosa, discover our world of enchanting fauna in this stunning, illustrated book. Divided by continent, and with a handy map opener, you can explore some of the wildest, weirdest and cutest animals on Earth. Each animal profile includes the Latin name, type, diet, size, weight, conservation status, curious facts about the species, and the collective noun or baby name for that animal.
Meet a slug that resembles a banana and a fuzzball mammal with 90 strands of hair per follicle. Marvel at an ant that burns like fire, a pig-beaver-hippo-cow-camel hybrid that eats its own poop, and a creature with the shortest lifespan on Earth (five minutes!). Discover that a group of bears is called a sloth and a baby lizard is called a hatchling.
Wildlife Compendium of the World also features sections on animal types and environments, animal rights, a word glossary and the conservation status of each animal. With a lustrous textured cover, this book is a wonderful resource and the perfect gift for animal-lovers - children and adults alike.
