From the Back Cover
With this charming and instructive coloring book youngsters (and adults) can learn a great deal about the world's wild creatures and have fun at the same time. Detailed, accurate, ready-to-color illustrations depict 47 species from around the globe, including the rhinoceros (black, white, and Indian), Grant's zebra, impala, giraffe, camel (dromedary and Bactrian), European and American bison, llama and vicuña, giant panda, elephant (Indian and African), gnu (wildebeest), chimpanzee, hippopotamus and pygmy hippopotamus, gorilla, snow leopard, yak, Asiatic buffalo (water buffalo), jaguar, bighorn sheep, black bear, polar bear, black-backed jackal, reindeer (caribou), tiger, red kangaroo, giant anteater, and more.
Each illustration is accompanied by a brief caption describing the habits of the species; many depict the animals as they might appear in their natural habitat — lions drowsing in the heat of the African veldt, a leopard lying in ambush on a limb, a giant panda contentedly munching bamboo, a polar bear and her cub surveying their icy domain, and more. Several double-page spreads depict exciting scenes of predator-prey relationships: muskoxen warily eying a pack of wolves, a mountain lion stalking mountain goats, and others. Colorists of all ages will find this exciting new volume irresistible; artists and designers will also find practical use for these accurately rendered royalty-free illustrations.

A coloring/reference/craft book with illustrations on front and back or each page, with 39 illustrations, including four 2 page illustrations, of large, land-dwelling, mammals, arranged geographically by continents, with a brief caption relating to each animal at the bottom of every page. Printed on heavy weight, bright white paper.
Did you know; there are 3 species of Zebra; or that the North American Grizzly, Kodiak, and European brown bear are all same specie called the Brown Bear; Bighorn Sheep engage in butting duels that last up to 20 hours; or that the llama is a member of the camel family? I didn’t until I read the descriptive captions under each Illustration. Gotta love this book!
