About this book

From boiling heat to bone-chilling cold, from the driest deserts to the darkest caves, from the tallest mountains to the deepest seas: these animals survive in the most extreme environments imaginable. Meet these incredible creatures, including polar bears and penguins that endure freezing temperatures, brine shrimp that swim in salty waters, birds that fly higher than airplanes, and even the ancient microscopic "water bear," an "extremophile" that could stay alive in outer space!



Age Level: 5 to 10 years

Biography

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is one of the largest and most respected museums in the world. Since the Museum was founded in 1869, its collections have grown to include more than 32 million specimens and artifacts relating to the natural world and human cultures. The Museum showcases its collections in the exhibit halls, and, behind the scenes, more than 200 scientists carry out cutting-edge research. It is also home to the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial, New York State's official memorial to its 33rd governor and the nation's 26th president, and a tribute to Roosevelt's enduring legacy of conservation. Approximately five million people from around the world visit the Museum each year.
