Whether fierce, startling, or mysterious, nocturnal animals never fail to fascinate. Here celebrated animal photographer Traer Scott takes us on a journey through nighttime in the animal kingdom, revealing some of nature's most elusive creatures. Get up close with the exquisite snow leopard and the unsettling Madagascar hissing cockroach, the mesmerizing corn snake and the cuddly chinchilla. All shown in full color against black backgrounds, other night-dwellers appearing in 75 photographs here include the African crested porcupine, the luna moth, the barred owl, and a particularly endearing otter. Short texts provide information on these creatures, from the pygmy slow loris—which you will probably never find in your back yard—to the common raccoon, which you hope will stay out of your trash cans.
