What animal can jump 25 feet in the air, then land on a rock the size of a coin? What animal’s color markings resemble another dangerous animal to keep predators away? What brilliant builder animal only works at night? These and many other questions are answered in the book Amazing Land Animals. I learned some very interesting facts about land animals that I didn’t know before. Whether camouflage, communicating, super senses, or using tools, these animals are awesome! I liked the format of using colorful drawings and actual photographs mingled with the text. I had some students read from this book and they liked it too. This will be a great addition to any library’s animal collection.
