Kinkajous by Kristin Petrie
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Welcome to the world of the kinkajou! Many readers may never have heard of this nocturnal creature. As an arboreal mammal, the kinkajou spends its time high in the forests of South America, Central America, and Mexico. A chapter on the kinkajous body discusses its size, appearance, and special features, such as its backward-turning feet, extra-long tongue, and prehensile tail. Other chapters cover its diet, life cycle, and habitat, including a map. Predators, including humans, are also introduced, along with threats to the kinkajous environment, such as deforestation, and conservation efforts that are in place. Every book in the Nocturnal Animals series includes sidebars on scientific classification, the special features of the nocturnal eye, and the difference between nocturnal, diurnal, and crepuscular animals. Full-color photographs will draw in the reader while showing off the kinkajous unique characteristics. Glossary words in bold, phonetic spellings, and an index supplement this easy-to-read text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
