Astonishing Animals: Extraordinary Creatures and the Fantastic Worlds They Inhabit0 0 5 Автор: Tim Flannery
Sumptuous birds of paradise, amazing soft-shell turtles, frogs that look like tomatoes, and terrifying fish (including the deep-water angler fish from Finding Nemo) are just some of the extraordinary creatures that can be found in Tim Flannery and Peter Schouten’s new book, Astonishing Animals.
Superbly illustrated with lifelike full-colour paintings, Astonishing Animals details ninety of the world’s most amazing animals from around the world. In this book you will find the hairy sea devil; the spectacular Sulawesi naked bat; and in the depths of the limestone caves in Slovenia, the olm, a pink, four-legged, sightless salamander that lives for a hundred years. In fascinating vignettes, Flannery offers the true evolutionary tale of how each of these bizarre creatures came to look the way they do. Alongside each historical account is a stunning hand-painted color reproduction (life-size in the original painting) by Schouten.
Filled with purple-faced apes, jagged-toothed dolphins, and antlered lizards, Astonishing Animals is a remarkable collection of the world’s most incredible creatures and the stories behind their remarkable survival into a modern age.
“An elegant paean to some of the world’s strangest and/or most beautiful creatures. ” —Mary Ann Gwinn, The Seattle Times
“As beautiful as it is fascinating, this book will be relished by animal lovers of all stripes. ” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
