Environment Artbook Series

The latest in the popular Environment Artbooks series written by Jill Morris and illustrated by Lynne (Tracey) Muir. Who would have thought there were so many different kangaroos! The 18 colour portraits in this richly illustrated volume cover a range of Macropods (mammals with long feet), including bettongs, rat-kangaroos and the unique quokka. Hiding in the many-layered paintings are spectacular birds and reptiles and some of the introduced species which compete with kangaroos for food: goats, cattle, sheep and rabbits.

Great reference for family and school use - or even to settle an adult argument about the difference between Red Kangaroo, Eastern Grey and the rough and tough Wallaroo. There are even kangaroos which eat and sleep in trees!

Available in paperback or the opulent hardback with endpapers and dustjacket.
