Wolves and Their Relatives
Look into a wolf's mouth, and see teeth that are perfectly shaped to kill their prey and then tear off chunks of meat. Watch the dominance-and-submission rituals that wolves go through to keep the peace in a pack. See them deep inside their den. Find out exactly how acute their hearing is, how sharp their eyesight can be, and how quickly they run. Get closer to wolves, learn more about their amazing habits, and gain deeper respect for their survival techniques with this photo-filled question-and-answer guide all about wolves, foxes, coyotes, and other members of the family, including the raccoon dog, the dingo, and the tiny Japanese Shamanu. Discover the wolf's evolution from small, insect-eating mammals called Miacidae, which lived during the time of the dinosaurs, and how they spread throughout the globe, from the hottest deserts to the coldest Arctic lands. Follow their life course from birth to death, their eating, sleeping, mating, and fighting habits. And most important of all, see what you can do to make sure future generations will be able to coexist with this remarkable creature of the wild. 80 pages (all in color), 8 1/2 x 8 1/2.
