Nature's Best: Parents Hardback

Part of the Nature's Best series

Hardback

Description

Some animals have developed astonishing parenting techniques which ensure the survival of their species, even in the harshest of conditions.

From emperor penguins, who share parenting duties and manage to raise their chicks in the coldest temperatures on Earth, to the giant anteater, who carries its tiny helpless baby on its back for months before it can fend for itself, the creatures featured in this book have developed ways of caring for their young that are both unique and out-of-this-world.

Find out more about these extraordinary behaviours and learn how evolution has shaped each animal's parenting strategy. Vivid, arresting photography paired with captivating animal encounters make this book a thrilling introduction to some of the basics of evolutionary theory.
