YEI Book review

Christmas might seem like months away, but here’s a book (The buck that buries its poo) that you can buy and store away as a Christmas present for the person in your life who enjoys fascinating information and fun trivia and who is a wildlife enthusiast and/or lover of the busy.  A book that dispels countless myths and answers many intriguing wildlife questions.  Questions like:

  • Is a zebra black with white stripes, or could it be white with black stripes?
  • Do sharks die if they stop swimming?
  • Why do bats hang upside down?
  • What’s up with the flamingo’s one-legged stance?
  • Is it fact or myth that chameleon’s change colour to camouflage themselves?
