Animals Up Close

(1 reviews with an average rating of 5 out of 5)

Publisher: Dorling Kindersley

Did you know that you can count the ring patterns on a tortoise’s shell to find out how old they are? Or that seahorses are actually fish?

Animals Up Close showcases over thirty creatures with close-up photographic images and simple facts about how they live and the special adaptations they have that help them survive. From the tree-climbing Racer Snake and fruit-eating Fire-Tufted Barbet to the tiny, super-cute Harvest Mouse, a selection of animals from land, sea and air are all included.

Flick through this book, dip in and out, read it cover to cover, or just enjoy looking at the photographs. Which creature have you never heard of before? Which one has the most surprising adaptation? And which one will be your favourite?
