About this book

Language: Japanese

This picture book offers visual comparisons between the skeletons of humans and other animals, highlighting the diversity of vertebrate body plans. By showing how humans would have to move to just like other animals, it shows how the appearance of animals often hides how their skeletons have changed, such as the fact that horses effectively walk on one finger. By comparing the skeletons of such animals to the human skeleton, accompanies by remarkable illustrations, the authors explain the ecology and evolutionary history of animals, and show the function of their skeletons.

Summary in Japanese:
誰も知らない、ほとんど知らない「生き物」と「人」の「骨比べ」に焦点を当てた初めてのビジュアル図鑑。 『ペンギンはいつも空気イスをしている』『馬は指一本で歩いている』など、動物たちの中にはその見た目からは想像もできないような骨格を持つものが多くいます。 そんな動物たちの骨格と人間の骨格を比べることで、その動物が持つ骨格の機能から読み解く動物の生態、進化の歴史などを、楽しいイラストと合わせて解説しています。
