The perfect gift for the wildlife enthusiast in the family!
This easy-to-use fold-out chart depicts the wildlife species most commonly seen in and around Australian towns and cities, from lizards and frogs to possums and butterflies. Each has at least one eye-catching photo, while for some there are up to three images where there are differences between male, female, juvenile and so on.
The sheet covers 65 species likely to be encountered in urban and sub- urban environments – including in parks, backyards, built-up areas and wetlands – and groups them togeth- er for easy comparison and identifi- cation. Each concise written account gives some facts about the animal, includ- ing its ID, behaviour, calls and its size (measured from the tip of its bill to the tip of its tail), plus details of habitats and cities where it might be seen, including a listing of each state capital within that species’ range.
The card is laminated for weather-proofing and strength, giving it extra durability to withstand heavy use and being stored in a backpack or other bag. It is the perfect introductory guide to wildlife for children, either for looking out of the window into the backyard or when out and about exploring, and it is also ideal for adults who are new to this ever-popular subject.
