Product description

There are few things more endearing than baby animals, but their charm belies their struggle for survival. From frolicking foxes to boisterous bears, lounging lions to zealous zebras, Nature's Babies explores the lives of some of Nature's most engaging offspring and reveals the ingenious ways they cope with growing up. When it comes to 'bringing up baby', Nature has an infinite variety of approaches, from parents who lovingly tend to their young for years to newborn babes who rough it on their own from day one. Nature's Babies offers a rare insight into how young animals make it into this world and learn to fend for themselves. Accompanied by beautiful photography throughout, Mike Dilger takes us on a journey of discovery through the intriguing world of Nature's Babies.
