Do all giraffes have the same pattern on their fur? How long is a giraffe's tongue? What is necking and why do giraffes do it? Find out the answers to these questions and many more in this beautifully designed book, part of the Animal Lives series from QED.
Full of stunning photographs of giraffes in their natural habitat, this is a wonderful and awe-inspiring addition to any child's bookshelf. This series is a great introduction to the world of animals – where they live, how they grow and learn, what they eat and the dangers they have to face.
Animal Lives has all the facts on your favourite animals. Each title in this appealing series takes an up-close look at a different creature, exploring habitat, conservation and animal adaptation, as well as looking at the life cycle of the particular animal and the way the young survive – often against tremendous odds. This series also discusses the importance of protecting endangered species and their habitats.
