Book Description

From sleek great white sharks to tiny insects and majestic elephants; this ebook; Zoology: The Secret World of Animals (PDF) invites you to explore the animal kingdom up close–from head to toe.

Whether you are interested in specific animal groups such as birds or mammals or have a passion for wildlife photography; this beautiful PDF ebook will fascinate; delight; and surprise.

DK’s elegant new introduction to wild animals is packed with dramatic photography and crystal-clear illustrations that explain how animals work; both socially; and physically; celebrates their beauty; and describes how they are adapted to do different things and survive in different environments. The unique head-to-toe approach; with chapters on different body parts; allows you to focus in on the beauty of the antenna of a moth; the flight feathers of a parrot; or the feeding tentacles of a coral. DK’s Zoology: The Secret World of Animals also explores how we have depicted animals in art throughout the ages; from zoological drawings that recorded new discoveries to great paintings and drawings inspired by a deep connection to the natural world. With fascinating stories; such as how to defend their territories; animals communicate; and attract mates; Zoology offers an engaging introduction to the extraordinary diversity of the animal kingdom.
