The World of Primates (Jeff Corwin's Explorer) (Other)
Championed by the late Diane Fossey, the endangered mountain gorilla is just one of the great apes covered in this guide to primates. The World of Primates - edited by world-famous naturalist Jeff Corwin - teaches about the way primates evolved, how they are built and how they behave, reproduce and survive in different habitats around the world. It also highlights some of the most familiar and unique species found worldwide, their current status, what to do if you encounter a primate in the wild and what you can do to help to conserve and protect these spectacular creatures. This folding pocket guide is the ideal reference for monkey-lovers and teachers alike. Made in the USA.
