Description

The Arctic and Antarctica are desolate places and only a few animals are equipped to live there. This book takes a look at hardy polar animals against the backdrop of their cold, windy and hostile environments. Inthe Arctic, fur-covered mammals such as Arctic wolf and snowshoe hare, the polar bear and lemming share their territories with the huge bowhead whale, the harp seal and the snowy owl. On the frozen continent of Antarctica, brown skuas and storm petrels squabble over food, while chinstrap and emperor penguins evade the fierce and predatory leopard seal.show more
