Penguins : the animal answer guide by Gerald L Kooyman( )

8 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,575 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Flightless, iconic birds made even more famous by the 2005 film March of the Penguins, penguins conjure up images of caring parents, devoted couples, and tough survivors. In Penguins: The Animal Answer Guide, Gerald L. Kooyman and Wayne Lynch inform readers about all seventeen species, including the emperor penguin featured in the film. Do you know why penguins live only in the Southern Hemisphere? Or that they can be ferocious predators? Why are penguins black and white? Do they play? This book answers these questions and many more, illuminating the fascinating biology and evolutionary history of these odd birds. Kooyman has studied penguins for decades, and Lynch’s photographs of penguins in the wild are the best ever captured. The result of their combined effort is a book that answers every penguin question you've ever had."--Publisher description
