Did you know that sea otters can spend months in the water without returning to land? Flying fish can glide for 300 feet over the water, while a praying mantis can rotate its head 180 degrees. The creatures that share our planet truly are amazing, and this gorgeously illustrated atlas introduces readers 9 to 12 to over 250 different animals—including the American bison, the giant anteater, the leatherback sea turtle, the brown bear, and the Atlantic puffin—clarifying where they live, what they eat, and how they communicate.
