Did you know that the rock yard has more blind threats that the Ethiopia is only found in Ethiopia and loves giant rats that the hippo does not have fat glands and sweat glands in the skin that can regulate the temperature that the secretary can kick with a force that is five times greater than its own weight or that The chameleon tongue can be as long as the body?
Such information is book full of and gives an extra dimension to the many magnificent pictures. All of the around 200 pictures were taken by the author himself during his over 30 trips to the African continent.
This is a book for pleasure for the whole family!
We constantly watch amazing nature films on TV, and many of them are about the animals in Africa. Some of the species are known and run, others more unknown. Nature photographer Tom Schandy has been more in Africa than most, and in this book he presents about 50 African animals; most mammals and birds, but also some reptiles. He takes you on a unique round trip in the animal kingdom and presents one exciting enlightenment after another.
