17 Kato, Yoshiko Animal Foot Prints
0893464287 / 9780893464288; Just as animals have different kinds of faces, they also have different kinds of feet. Animals use their feet for many different functions besides walking - running, climbing trees, gathering food, digging holes (maybe your dog or cat does that! ) , and even for protecting themselves. An animal's feet are perfectly suited to its lifestyle and environment. Depending on the species, animals have different numbers of toes. A horse, for example, only has one. An animal's feet are marvelously adapted to its surroundings. You might even say that an animal's feet can tell you more about it than its face can! Examine the animals in this book by looking at their feet - and maybe this will give us a new perspective on our own! The prints are full-size, with a fold-out for an elephant's foot, and has information of 14 different animals, including the Koala, Bear, Panda, Gorilla, Chimpanzee, Japanese Monkey and more. Photographs of all animals are included, as well as other interesting facts about each. 47 pages, fully illustrated in color. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
