Animal Planet's definitive atlas of animal life takes readers on a continent-by-continent and habitat-by-habitat passport to adventure! Meet fierce snow leopards in the Tibetan mountains, giant helicopter damselflies in the rain forests of Central America, majestic eagles in the temperate forests of North America, and hundreds more fascinating creatures.
What is a habitat? How is the North Pole's animal life different from the South Pole's? How and why do animals adapt to their environment? Is a food web different from a food chain? Animal Planet Animal Atlas answers all these questions and more in a kid-friendly, accessible format that young readers, parents, teachers, and librarians will adore.
Through illustrated maps of every continent and its major biomes, full-color photographs of more than 200 animals, and illustrated animal travel guides presenting fun animal trivia, readers can track their favorite animals across the globe while learning about how animal habitats are affected by climate, food and water availability, migration, and human environmental impact. Additional special features throughout the book point out ways in which many animals on our planet share characteristics or behaviors with humans. "ROAR" sidebars discuss conservation and animal rescue efforts around the globe. R.O.A.R. (Reach Out. Act. Respond.) is Animal Planet's initiative dedicated to improving the lives of animals in our communities and in the wild.
