The Illustrated Compendium of Amazing Animal Facts
This charming compendium contains over 100 pages of fascinating facts about the animal kingdom illustrated with whimsical detail. A wonderful companion to the Museum's current Animal Kingdom exhibit.
Did you know that an octopus has three hearts?
Or that ostriches can't walk backward?
Or that a group of owls is called a parliament, or that they have three eyelids?
Sea otters hold hands in their sleep, bees never sleep, and penguins laugh when they're tickled!
