DK CHILDREN | 2000 | ISBN: 078946036X | 64 pages | PDF | 42,8 MB
Here is a spectacular and informative guide to the lives of the great apes, monkeys, and other primates. Superb color photographs of gorillas, orangutans, macaques, baboons, lemurs and numerous other primate species offer a unique "eyewitness" look at some of the world's most intelligent animals.
See a great silverback gorilla, the monkey with the biggest nose, how gibbons swing through the trees, multicolored marmosets, and a day in the life of a gorilla family.
Learn about the knuckle walk, how a tail becomes a hand, why gorillas build nests, which South American monkeys have the loudest call, and how orangutans got their name.
Discover why mountain gorillas are endangered, how chimpanzees communicate, why ring-tailed lemurs wave their tails in the air, which monkeys can run like cheetahs and much, much more.
