About National Geographic Illustrated Guide to Wildlife
From one of the most trusted names in field guides comes a new and lavishly illustrated guide to identifying North America’s most common birds, mammals, insects, reptiles, and amphibians, plus fish and other aquatic creatures. Broad in scope and clearly organized, National Geographic Illustrated Guide to Wildlife is just like having five field guides in one. Each of the five realms of wildlife gets a chapter, and each chapter identifies 160 of the most common and most interesting animals around, providing essential information and a bullet list of key points on each species. Photographs and original artwork represent 900 species total, making this the ultimate field guide to the creatures of the continental United States and Canada, from your own backyard into the deepest wilderness.
“A valuable reference when you start planning family vacations…encompasses five field guides in one book and is a great resource to learning more about the small animals, birds, and insects in your neighborhood and the larger species you will find in national parks and at seashores.” —Designing Wealth
