A thrilling face-to-face encounter with the intimate lives, elaborate displays and extraordinary behaviour of animals in their own environment Internationally renowned zoologist and presenter of TV's Animal Planet, Charlotte Uhlenbroek, leads a compelling study that brings the animal kingdom to vivid life. Illustrated with astonishing wildlife photography and action sequences, every aspect of animal life and behaviour is explored and explained - from courtship rituals and birth to hunting and death. Mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fish and invertebrates - thousands of all kinds are featured. How the animal kingdom is organized, and how animals' bodies function are all explained, while outstanding action sequences bring key behavioural traits to life and critical conservation issues are also considered. From the fleeting life of a mayfly to the 10-year courtship of the manikin, this is the animal kingdom laid bare in all its awe-inspiring glory and detail.

All animals have to eat, but feeding behavior goes far beyond predators and prey. Animals have a variety of ways to find food. Some sit and wait for food to come to them. Others chase or trap their food. Other animals are scavengers and decomposers, breaking down the leftovers of other animals' meals. Animal Hunting and Feeding explains these various techniques as well as the importance of food chains and food webs.
