Dogs are bred to have extra-sensitive noses that can protect us at airports. Strange-looking cats have adapted with big ears and dull claws to live in the desert. Zoos have ways to entertain tigers and help them develop their wild side while they live in captivity. Lisa Hart’s Feathers, Fur and Fun Facts introduces eight wonderful creatures that need our protection and deserve our respect. Her collection of informative articles details the adaptations animals make that enable them to live in their harsh environments, and the various foods they eat to survive. The photos and details in this book encourage the young reader to meet these birds, lizards, and mammals in real life and learn more about them. The book also lists resources to help protect these animals.

Did you know that the call of the red-tailed hawk is often used in movies instead of the true voice of an eagle because movie directors think the red-tailed hawk’s cry is more regal than that of an eagle? Did you know that the tuatara, that looks a lot like a lizard and lives in New Zealand, was around when dinosaurs walked the earth? Did you know that groundhogs are not the only creatures that predict the end of winter? Lisa Hart’s Feathers, Fur and Fun Facts is sure to please curious readers of all ages who love animals. The links at the end of the book lead to YouTube videos and websites with further information about these wonderful creatures and how to protect them.
