This is the long, catalog/marketing description of the product.Across North Carolina's three major biomes -- coastal, mountain, and piedmont -- is a multitude of animals living throughout the Tarheel State's varied topography and many unique habitats. Great Smoky Mountain National Park is one of the best places in North America to find salamanders. Coastal Cape Hatteras is a mecca for seabirds and shorebirds. Black Bears roam high-altitude boreal forests. State mammal Eastern Gray Squirrel is found primarily in hardwood forests. There is so much to learn when it comes to North Carolina's wildlife, and it can be both exciting and a bit overwhelming to sift through so many species. It helps, then, to establish a foundation of knowledge based on a smaller group of the most familiar animals. You can do this with the portable reference North Carolina Wildlife, which features beautiful illustrations of 140 mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, butterflies, and other insects as well as an ecoregion map showing over 20 wildlife-viewing hotspots and learning sites. Laminated for durability, this lightweight, 12-panel folding pocket guide is the ideal companion for educators, learners, naturalists, birders, and wildlife enthusiasts who wish to connect more meaningfully with the land through its attendant animals. Made in the USA.
