Summary:

"You probably know what your favorite animals look like, but do you really have any idea how big or small they really are? Could you picture the size of a tiger's face, or an elephant's tail, or an ostrich's egg? Life-Size Animals has pages and pages of life-size illustrations of different animals' tongues, teeth, claws, eggs, tails, and more. It encourages readers to compare the sizes of the different animals to themselves-seeing how long their tongues compared to a giraffe or how big their eyes are compared to a giant squid's-and it helps to put in context just how big or small these incredible creatures are. Packed with facts and incredible illustrations"--
