About the Book
From the snug sleeping bags made out of leaves constructed by Honduran white bats to the thirty-feet-high towers filled with passageways and rooms that termites build, animals have impressive abodes. Nature lovers will be fascinated by how animals solve the problem of locating safe places in which to live and raise families.
