9780061198588: Penguins

A remarkable insight into the life of every species

Is it true that Penguins stay with the same partner for life? Why do most penguins keep stones in their stomachs? Why is a fat King Penguin male more attractive to the female?

Penguins are fascinating animals: they cannot fly, they are awkward on land, but are as agile as fish under water. Their ability to survive in some of the coldest regions on Earth inspires wonder and admiration, particularly for the species that incubate their eggs in the dark winter of the Antarctic. Penguins explains all these extraordinary facets of their lives and more. It is the perfect introduction to every species found on Earth and is a brilliant combination of amazing photographs and stunning facts.

Book Description Harper, 2007. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: What is it about penguins that makes them so lovable? Perhaps we identify with their almost-human gait on land, or their ability to survive in the harshest of climates, or their extremely social nature. Penguins is the rare book that combines a fabulous visual study of these creatures with up-to-date information on all seventeen species, from the largest (Emperor Penguin) to the tiniest (the aptly named Little Penguin). Through the text and pictures, the reader will learn all about life in their colonies, and how they live on land and sea, raise and feed their chicks, and manage their long, annual migrations. Brutus Ostling's amazing photography completely captures the nature of these creatures. Looking at the images makes one feel as if the birds were posing for the camera; Ostling has a knack for capturing them in the most natural of settings, going about their daily activities, at work or at play.
