About this book

Language: Bilingual in English and Spanish

The Caribbean island of Puerto Rico is home to over a dozen species of tiny and beautiful frogs, and many hundreds of species of insects, snails, lizards and birds--more than 5000. Many live nowhere else on Earth and are shown here for the first time in this interpretive guide to the island's nature. Here you will learn about the ways and lives of Puerto Rican animals, how they came to exist, and why they are unique. You will find out how these wonderful creatures depend upon the plants and upon each other; and what benefits bacteria, fungi and termites give to the forest.
