Extinct animals of the world
Extinct animals of the worldJens Hansegård, illustrated by Anders Nyberg
What do you know about the amazing animals that lived on earth a very long time ago? Besides dinosaurs there were many other species that were just as ex- citing. The animals in this book include the poor dodo, the bird that couldn’t fly, making it an easy victim that was driven to extinction by humanity, and the quagga, a sort of mixture between a horse and a zebra, the last specimen of which died in Amsterdam in the late 19th century. The book ends with a reminder about which animals are under threat of extinction today if we don’t do anything about it.
This is a smart, exciting and easy to read reference book that is hard to put down!
