Illuminating the unique physical features and behaviors of six nocturnal animals, this new series takes a narrative approach toward life-science topics. As we peer into nocturnal forests and skies, from nighttime awakening to sunlight retreat, atmospheric text and images knit together stories of survival, noting the adaptations that enable each creature to carve out its own niche in its particular habitat. A detailed diagram points out such characteristics in-depth, allowing more visual learners to match facts with real images. Peer into the nocturnal Southeast Asian tropical forests with this high-interest introduction to the venomous primates known as slow lorises.
