Baby Animals are the key to the survival of any species. Whether cared for until almost adult or abandoned at the egg-laying stage, they are proof of the drive of every living thing to reproduce. From birds, reptiles, and amphibians to fish, spiders, and insects, this pictorial celebration of baby animals covers in detail preparations before birth, birth and development, feeding and growth, self-defense, imitation and play, parental instruction and obligations, and the moment of independence. All living creatures have a wonderful story to tell through the lives of their babies. Absorbing, appealing, and vulnerable, these young creatures just entering the world can also teach us a great deal about ourselves. Entertaining and informative, Baby Animals is just one title from the series Animals in the Wild.
Anyone seeking a better understanding of the animal kingdom, especially these diverse creatures, will enjoy this book and the entire series. Each title in this series includes color photos throughout, and back matter including: an index and further reading lists for books and internet resources.
