Why do wolves howl at the moon? Does the laughing hyena really laugh? Why does the hippopotamus like wallowing in the mud? What does the cheetah use its long tail for?
Wild animals live in the natural world, far from contact with humans, making it difficult to see them in their natural habitat. For this very reason, we want to get to know them better and understand where they live, what they eat, how they defend themselves from predators. This book allows you to travel across continents, from the African savannah to the Amazon rainforest, from dense Alpine woods to the riverbanks of Eastern Europe, from the Indian jungle to the vast grasslands of Australia. You’ll meet many families of mammals: small rodents and bizarre hoofed beasts, ferocious carnivores, comical marsupials and cute bats: the only mammals that can fly. You’ll find out what happened to the animals of the ice age, now extinct, and which wild animals venture into town!
