About the Book

Animal Fact File is a visual guide to the most important—and most interesting—unique anatomical features of the world's most irresistible and fascinating mammals. Covering animals from diverse corners of the globe, from the trees of the Amazon basin to the depths of the ocean, the blazing floor of the desert to the frozen tundra of the Arctic, this book features more than 90 mammals, from aardvarks to wombats.

Each animal is featured on a two-page, full-colour illustrated spread that highlights special features of its body, accompanied by X-ray views showing the skeleton with clear annotations. Fact boxes and captions provide additional information, such as size, colour, distinguishing features and feeding habits.

Animal Fact File is the perfect introduction to the animal world for the general reader and an essential reference for any young adult with an interest in these remarkable mammals.
