100 Essential New Zealand Creatures

100 Essential New Zealand Creatures (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

By Meduna, Veronika

From a tiny frog that is both noiseless and deaf to a giant dragonfly that can curl its body into a heart shape, the fascinating diversity of New Zealand's wildlife is beautifully revealed in these colorful photographs. Introducing rare creatures such as a warbler that does not w...arble, the book shows how a local species can go to extreme lengths of adaptation and become the sole representative of an originally widespread family. Alongside these intriguing rarities, more common creatures are shown to be important in another way: they not only survive but thrive, despite numerous threats to their habitats. The 100 creatures featured are chosen for their memorable traits and include birds, insects, mammals, fish, and a miscellaneous group that includes coral, barnacles, and snails.
