Fauna

Australia’s Most Curious Creatures
Tania McCartney

Description

Did you know that platypus have retractable webbing on their hind feet to enable an easy transition from swimming to digging? That kangaroos can’t sweat and that the cassowary has no tongue? In Fauna, readers are constantly introduced to facts that delight, amaze and induce sheer wonder at the clever design and adaptability of our much-loved native fauna.

The information on each individual species is presented in small ‘bites’ to hold the interest of younger readers, while the information taken in total gives a comprehensive summary of each species, including breeding and feeding habits, physical characteristics, habitat and other unique and quirky features.

Fauna also has a strong conservation message with an ‘extinction roll call’ and a rating for the vulnerability of endangered species.

Recommended for ages 6+.
