Super Nature Encyclopedia spotlights the wow factor in the natural world, taking you behind the scenes and "under the skin" of animals to uncover the secrets of their behavior and anatomy. How can a cheetah accelerate from 0-40mph in three seconds? What is that Alien-like set of jaws in a moray eel's throat for? How do termites build cooling systems into their homes? Super Nature Encyclopedia takes the most fascinating and surprising stories and explores them in remarkable visual detail. Every animal included is visualized in the clearest and most dramatic way possible, including incredibly detailed 3-D models that utilize cross-sections and strip layers away to reveal every essential detail. A remarkable array of species are explored, from a giant baleen whale to a butterfly, with the artworks showing their key anatomical features and also explaining how and why their bodies work the way they do. Inspiring, vivid, and based on the latest scientific knowledge.
