The World Of African Wildlife is a safari guide for young explorers. Here are examples of the information you can find in the book:
- Birds that are most often seen walking or packing on the ground include francolins, sangrouse, guineafowl, ostriches, cranes, bustards and korhaans., the secretary bird and the large and boldly coloured ground hornbill.
- Dragonflies may be the world’s most successful hunters. They have excellent eyesight, and are able to fly fast and with great agility. More than 90% of dragonfly attacks are successful. They catch their insect prey in flight, and help to keep pests like mosquitoes under control.
How does a gemsbok stay cool in the desert?
Why should you never pick up a bullfrog?
Which predators have the cleverest hunting techniques?
Why do animals leave droppings in the veld?
The answers to these and many other questions can be found in this informative and entertaining book for young nature lovers. Jam-packed with fascinating facts and photographs of animals in the wild, it introduces younger readers to the wide diversity of Africa’s wildlife, from mammals and birds to reptiles and insects, and much more. Additional fact boxes, did-you-knows and fun activities make this a book that can be enjoyed over and over again – whether at home or on an African safari.
