Stunning real-life photographs of bushbabies, badgers, wallabies and more offer a unique "eyewitness" view of the natural history of mammal behavior and anatomy. See how newborn mice develop, what the inside of a molehill looks like, what a whale has inside its mouth, how a chinchilla keeps its fur clean, and the only mammals that can fly. Learn how to recognize mammal footprints, why some animals store food in their cheek pouches, why you are a mammal, and how the porcupine frightens its enemies.

Full-color photos. "Mammal looks at evolution; contrasts fur-coated and spiny-covered mammals; and studies birth and development, habitations, and grooming practices of members of this animal classification. Each eye-catching double-page spread treats a different, intriguing aspect of animal life. Engravings and caringly selected art reproductions interplay with choice photos, luring readers. Ideal for reference browsing and indexed for ready fact-finding, this is a sumptuous science sampler."--(starred) Booklist.Review:
