SOUTH AMERICAN ANIMALS is now available as an e-book on Amazon Kindle. It was originally published by Morrow Junior Books in 1999 and is out of print. The cover has been redesigned but the text and full color photos inside are the same as in the original book. SOUTH AMERICAN ANIMALS is illustrated with pictures that I obtained through photo research from a variety of sources including my own collection. Many came from my trip to South America with my family, which included a visit to Patagonia where we saw penguins, guanacos, condors and all sorts of other wild animals. I am happy to have SOUTH AMERICAN ANIMALS now available to new readers as an e-book. You can read it with a Kindle app on various devices (I use my iPad) or on your computer.
"When a jaguar walks the forest floor, other animals get out of the way.
This meat eater is the largest predator in South America. It can grow
up to eight feet long. Jaguars hunt at night and can see well in the
dark. They feed on alligators, tapirs, and other large forest animals."
monkeys, snakes, birds and many more species make their homes in the
vast tropical forests of South America. Other animals, such as guanacos
and bears, inhabit its craggy mountain peaks, while penguins and sea
turtles migrate annually to is windswept coasts. Still other animals,
including several varieties of deer and foxes, roam its open grasslands.
This book, filled with twenty-five breathtaking photographs, highlights
many of the most fascinating animals of South America.
