"It's likely that a book like this is the only way you might see many of these creatures for yourself." - Amateur Photographer
This book of photographs puts the spotlight on a group of animals that is little-noticed, and undeservedly so: endemic species that exist only on their respective islands. Isolated from continents by the ocean, certain species have been able to evolve further and differently than their counterparts on the mainland, where they are subjected to far more threats such as predators and diseases. Over time, giants like the Indonesian Komodo dragon have evolved, which grows up to three metres long and weighs 70 kilos. The comet moth lives on Madagascar, and the odd King of Saxony bird-of-paradise flies around on New Guinea. The flightless cormorant on Galapagos, on the other hand, retracted its flight instruments over time because it had no need for them. Readers can expect a variety of animal beauty and extravagance.

The following locations are included in the book:
Island of Sainte Marie (Madagascar)
Madagascar
Philippines
Lesser Sunda Islands (Indonesia)
Aru Islands Regency (Indonesia)
New Guinea
