Let Marni Fylling show you the world of splendidly strange plants and animals just outside your door!
- Pigeons share nest-building and egg-sitting duties, and mate for life - with occasional dalliances.
- Squirrel teeth grow about six inches per year.
- Spiders owe their characteristic creep to their "hydraulic" legs.
- Poison oak and poison ivy's itch-inducing oil is also found in pistachios, cashews and mangoes.
- And more...
This field guide describes the most common species of flora and fauna across the United States: their size, habitats, distinguishing features, and their unexpectedly fascinating habits. The full-color illustrations make species identification a snap. With Fylling's guidance, the everyday becomes extraordinary.
