About this book

We all know that humans get about by striding on two legs, but what about the rest of the animal kingdom. How do animals use their muscles, limbs, wings and even tails to get them to where they want to go? Animal locomotion is all about using what you have to get you going using different body parts in different ways in a bumpy, slithery and galloping ride. How do frogs jump? Why do elephants walk on their toes? And what makes a kangaroo's tail so important? Over thousands of years animals have developed finely tuned body parts, that make them the tallest on land, the fastest in the air and the best swimmers in the ocean. Humans use upright bodies and two long legs. Other animals use their muscles, limbs, wings and even tails, to get them to where they are going. Animals push against the air, the land or the water to propel themselves along. How Wild Things Move goes behind the scenes to reveal how the animal kingdom moves around our planet.
