Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The brown bear – the largest terrestrial carnivore in the world – is one of the many fascinating species covered in this guide. The World of Bears – edited by world-famous naturalist Jeff Corwin – teaches about the way bears evolved, how they are built and how they behave, reproduce and survive in different habitats around the world. It also highlights some of the most familiar and unique species found worldwide, their current status, what to do if you encounter a bear in the wild and what you can do to help to conserve and protect these spectacular creatures. This folding pocket guide is the ideal reference for bear-lovers and teachers alike. Made in the USA.

Synopsis:

The brown bear is the largest terrestrial carnivore in the world. There are many subspecies throughout the world, including the grizzly in North America, the Kodiak, the Eurasian brown bear and the Siberian brown bear. Weighing up to 2500 pounds, they can also reach 10 feet in height. A typical lifespan is about 25 years in the wild, longer in captivity.

In this guide, we explore the world of bears and provide facts to help you better understand and treasured animals. Learn about their anatomy, behaviors, the distribution of the bears in the world and what you can do to protect and preserve them.
