From tiny rats and bats to giant elephants and blue whales, our planet is home to an incredible variety of mammals. Featuring almost 200 profiles of individual species as well, Pocket Genius: Mammals looks at humans, whales, wallabies, camels, and more, highlighting facts on anatomy, behavior, diet, habitats, and classification, plus extinction and conservation efforts to save endangered species.
Redesigned in paperback, DK’s best-selling Pocket Genius series is now available in an engaging compact and economical format that is ideal for both browsing and quick reference for use in school and at home.
