Detailed, accurate, ready-to-color illustrations depict 47 species from around the globe, including the rhinoceros (black, white, and Indian), Grant's zebra, impala, giraffe, camel (dromedary and Bactrian), European and American bison, llama and vicuña, giant panda, elephant (Indian and African), gnu (wildebeest), chimpanzee, hippopotamus and pygmy hippopotamus, gorilla, snow leopard, yak, Asiatic buffalo (water buffalo), jaguar, bighorn sheep, black bear, polar bear, black-backed jackal, reindeer (caribou), tiger, red kangaroo, giant anteater, and more.
Each illustration is accompanied by a brief caption describing the habits of the species; many depict the animals as they might appear in their natural habitat — lions drowsing in the heat of the African veldt, a leopard lying in ambush on a limb, a giant panda contentedly munching bamboo, a polar bear and her cub surveying their icy domain, and more. Several double-page spreads depict exciting scenes of predator-prey relationships: muskoxen warily eying a pack of wolves, a mountain lion stalking mountain goats, and others.
