Book Review


Meet the underdogs of the animal kingdom. they're not as praised as lions, tigers and other big shot mammals, but this book is here to show you why they should be. The dingiso basically looks like a living breathing teddy bear and can jump to the ground from a 60 foot tree without receiving injury. The forest musk deer, unlike real deer, hangs out in trees. The little yellow-throated marten which, as the name suggests, has bright yellow fur, can take down an entire deer. The gerenuk and the dibatags are antelope with necks like giraffes. In learning about all these lesser known mammals, you might just find your new favorite animal.
