The 'Dorling Kindersley Animal Encyclopedia' answers thousands of intriguing questions about the animal kingdom and provides a fascinating insight into animal behavior, instincts, and survival. Lavishly illustrated with dramatic close-up and time-lapse photography, the 'Dorling Kindersley Animal Encyclopedia' brings the animal world vividly to life-watch a frog leap through the air, a moth hatch from its pupa, a snake constrict its prey, and stag beetles in combat. Fact boxes and at-a-glance scale indicators provide essential data on individual species, and step-by-step sequences home in on incredible detail. 'The Dorling Kindersley Animal Encyclopedia' is fully cross-referenced to guide the reader to related entries and topics, with an extensive index, and an accessible glossary.
