Small and Tall Tales of Extinct Animals
A fascinating journey around the world of extinct animals, combining cartoons with naturalist drawings, and mythology with science. Hundreds of years ago, Earth was home to some strange animals. There was the giant beaver taller than a human; the Sicilian dwarf elephant; the three-metre-tall elephant bird; the giant lemur nicknamed the tratratratra; the world-famous dodo...
Hunted by humans and weakened by climate change, these animals gradually disappeared. All that remains are footprints and fossils, explorers’ stories and fascinating folk tales—all waiting to be discovered in the pages of this book.
