About this product
- DescriptionThe wild, wary gray wolf. The largest wild member of the dog family, the gray wolf stalks much larger mammals, such as the elk, caribou and moose. How does it succeed? Built to run, the long-legged wolf on the hunt uses its powerful sight, hearing, smell and physical strength. But, like the domestic dog, the wolf is a social animal: it lives in a pack. In this fully illustrated introduction, young readers will learn how group living makes sense for the wolf, allowing it to form strong bonds and share tasks like rearing its young, finding food and communicating over long distances. They'll also find out how habitat destruction, poisoning campaigns and hunting have reduced gray wolf populations in much of North America. Full-color photographs provide close-ups and action shots, while the engaging text, sidebars and captions tell the life history of an animal that researchers agree has one of nature's most engaging personalities. Firefly Books' Exploring the World of... nature series was created for younger readers who are eager to learn more about the wild creatures of North America. Each title contains beautiful photographs that depict the animals in their natural habitats, while the highly readable text explores their daily lives -- where and how they make their homes, what they eat, how they hunt, how they communicate and how they raise their young.
