The engineering skills of beavers, the showy plumage of flamingos, and the defining characteristics of six other fascinating animals are explored in the newest titles in the Living Wild series. Vivid photographs help take readers on a virtual field study to observe the life cycle and behaviors of each featured mammal, bird, and amphibian. Each book also looks at past and present scientific research and includes a unique storytelling element in the form of ananimal tale drawn from mythology or folklore. Progressively complex text draws readers into this mainstay life science series, incorporating social studies, history, fine arts and pop culture. In this title take a scientific look at brown bears, including their habitats, physical characteristics such as their coat, behaviors, relationships with humans, and elusiveness of the apex predators in the world today.
