If you were exploring in the Ice Age, would you be able to recognize the tracks of a sabre-tooth tiger, the droppings of a woolly rhinoceros, or the call of the giant deer? If not, this unique book is the essential guide for quick, on-the-spot reference. For readers fascinated by long-extinct creatures, this is a guide to how 12 Ice-Age animals would have lived, eaten, and hunted. Vivid illustrations are accompanied by notes on size, body shape, fur, food, behavior, and the sort of habitat in which each animal might have been found. Additional notes and illustrations indicate signs to look out for when tracking each animal such as dung and tracks. And there are even warnings to prepare would-be trackers for the dangers that some Ice-Age animals presented.
