Numbers help us understand our world. We use numbers to measure and compare things. Numbers help us explain what happened in the past and predict what might happen in the future.
When it comes to animals, numbers are especially important. How big is a whale? How fast is a cheetah? How loud is a lion’s roar? It would be difficult to answer these questions—even to ask them—without numbers.
In this book, facts and figures about animals are presented visually as graphs, symbols, and illustrations. These infographics give us another way of looking at animals and understanding some of the amazing things that they can do.
