This deck of Knowledge Cards presents 48 full-color images of freshly arrived animals by two renowned nature photographers. The back of each card gives information on the natural history of the animal depicted on the front, with emphasis on its early life.
Within many species, the physical characteristics and behavior that say "I'm a baby!" attract unusual gentleness from adults--whether they are related or not. Big eyes, big heads, little round bellies, and soft new fur or pinfeathers are among the visible infant indicators that make adults predisposed to treat them kindly. Add to that a baby's goggle-eyed delight at finding itself where it is, and the fawn, whelp, duckling, or what have you becomes irresistible.
Lovers of superb nature photography, casual naturalists, and those of tender heart will delight in this deck's brilliant images and concise, informed text. Photographs by Kevin Schafer and Tim Fitzharris; text by Dona Budd. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this product supports Sierra Club's efforts to preserve and protect the planet.
