A rich zoology resource, this book presents natural-history quality illustrations and information for the vertebrate class of mammal. A great complement to classification work, this volume covers the unique characteristics, food, habitat, locomotion, self-defense, life cycle, and importance of mammals.
Simple sentences face illustrations: "Mammals have hair." The afterword explains more about the image using more complex language: "They may have thick fur...sharp quills...or only a few stiff whiskers."
