New Look! Relaunched with new jackets and 8 pages of new text! Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the natural world of mammals. Stunning real-life photographs of bushbabies, badgers, wallabies and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history of mammal behavior and anatomy. See how newborn mice develop, what the inside of a molehill looks like, what a whale has inside its mouth, how a chinchilla keeps its fur clean, and the only mammals that can fly. Learn how to recognize mammal footprints, why some animals store food in their cheek pouches, why you are a mammal, and how the porcupine frightens its enemies. Discover how camels can walk on sand, what mammals looked like in the Ice Age, why some mammals have spines instead of fur, what whiskers are for, why a wallaby has a pouch, and much, much more!
