Smithsonian Wild Animal Explorer provides young readers with hours of entertainment and insights into the worlds of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fish, birds and more.
Organized by environment, this hefty guidebook features the well-known, yet fascinating (tigers, elephants, ants) as well as the unusual and rarely seen (molerats, borrowing owls).
Each entry focuses on a specific animal and details where it can be found, how big it is, and a variety of fascinating, little known facts that help explain how and why it acts the way it does. For example, honey bees need to land on about two million flowers to make a single pound of honey. Earthworms can burrow more than six feet deep in a single day!
From deserts and rainforests to the poles and oceans below, there's no place on Earth the Smithsonian won't explore!
