Get closer to nature than you've ever been before with this jaw-dropping guide to our wonderful world.

Marvel at the breathtaking photography showcasing flora and fauna in the most incredible, intricate detail.
From ants to elephants, the animal kingdom is explored and explained in this extraordinary encyclopedia that puts you at the heart of the action. See the tiny spines on a stinging nettle, watch lichen spreading over a tree, and observe the secret suckers on an iguana's feet. The mysteries of the natural world are displayed in brand new images, together with cross-sections, macro, and electron microscope images.

Alongside the utterly absorbing visual content, Explanatorium of Nature brings its own fountain of knowledge about how nature works. For instance, did you know that baby foxes are born with blue eyes which turn to gold? Or that reptile scales are made from the same material as your fingernails? Discover how spiders spin webs, how birds fly, how snakes kill, and much, much more.

This unputdownable book is a guaranteed favourite for animal lovers, nature enthusiasts, and budding wildlife experts everywhere.
