Description

This well illustrated book shows how clever are the architects and engineers of the animal world. They make tunnels, weave waterproof homes, bore into wood and mould clay into skyscrapers or many chambered constructions. We also learn how animals adjust for temperature and comfort, make boltholes for times of danger , and store food for their offspring.
