Giant Pandas inspire affection and instant recognition with their distinctive white faces and black ears and eye patches. Meet China's national treasure, pictured in a natural, protected mountain habitat where we have the chance to follow on photographer Heather Angel's shoulder as she reveals pandas as we have never seen them: playing in the snow, a mother with baby, leading their lives, apparently oblivious of one another.
Dinosaurs like you've never seen them before--in a book packed with more than 25 hands-on experiments.What do dinosaurs look like from the inside out? Take a journey with renowned paleontologist Chris McGowan as he examines species from Allosaurus to T. Rex Along with each creature are experiments that kids can do on their own to make sedimentary rock, replicate a fossil, and uncover how we know what we know about dinosaurs, even though they've been extinct for millions of years. More than twenty-five hands-on experiments include Breaking Bones, which uses chicken bones to see how fossils were preserved; creating a replica of a feathered Archaeopteryx fossil; and using a turkey neck to dissect a Brachiosaurus' bone structure. You'll be a paleontologist in no time
Incredible illustrations highlight this striking book introducing animals in camouflage. The lush illustrations alone will enthrall readers, but clues to seven remarkably well-hidden animals will draw them into new worlds. Further explorations of the habits and lives of these animals is provided in the back of the book.
In the deep, dark canyons of the sea live the largest animals on Earth: the heart of the blue whale is the size of a sports car, the eye of a right whale is the size of a grapefruit, and the 'wing span' of a humpback's flippers can reach 12 metres. In Meeting the Whales, author Erich Hoyt pieces together the life histories of the enigmatic giants that swim the waters of the northern hemisphere. Hoyt has spent years working with these mammals, and his fascination and empathy for them is evident in Meeting the Whales.
Bringing us face-to-face both with these intriguing creatures and the scientists who study them, Hoyt leads us through the underwater world of whales, investigating their unique communication skills and feeding and mating behaviors, their remarkable migrations and their astounding acrobatics. Beautifully illustrated by whale specialist Pieter Folkens, and the work of the world's best wildlife photographers, Meeting the Whales is a unique contribution to the study of this increasingly rare animal.
