Life-Size Zoo : From Tiny Rodents to Gigantic Elephants, An Actual Size Animal Encyclopedia (Hardcover)
about this item
An elephant's trunk is so nimble, it can pick up a single blade of grass, and yet so strong, it can knock over a tree. Giraffes have eyelashes. Sloths hang from trees for days at a time without going to the bathroom. These are just some of the insights featured in Life-Size Zoo. Acclaimed wildlife photographer Toyofumi Fukuda visited Japan's premier zoos to capture remarkably vivid and detailed close-up photographs of 21 animals, from pandas and meerkats to giraffes, rhinos, and elephants (adult and baby). Each photograph is accompanied by a profile including body length, weight, and natural habitat, as well as fun facts about the animal.
Examines the unique characteristics, strange skills, and special abilities of twenty-one different zoo animals, including giraffes, rhinos, elephants, meerkats, and pandas, in a text with several gatefold pages.
