About this book

Language: Japanese

This unusual picture book shows the diversity of vertebrate body plans by picturing what humans would look like if their anatomy was organised in the same way as, for example, a turtle or a flamingo.

Summary in Japanese:
もし人間の骨格の一部が動物のものだったら

「えっ! カメの甲羅って人間のあばらなの? 」
「フラミンゴの逆に曲がった膝の部分は人間でいう足首!? 」

図鑑や動物園の解説でなんとなく知ってはいるけど、いまいちピンとこない動物の体のしくみ。
そんな動物の体の構造を、私たちヒトのからだを無理やり変形させることで、わかりやすくしてみました。

カメの甲羅、ゾウの鼻、コウモリの手……
おなじみの動物たちの体の一部が直感的によくわかる!
まったく新しい「体感型」動物図鑑です!
