Ice Age Mammals

A Guide to the Big, the Hairy, and the Bizarre


Colorfully illustrated descriptions of strange and marvelous beasts form the heart of this great book. You'll learn about the geologic events that led to the ice ages, along with possible causes for the mass extinctions of so many species. Fun sidebars explore such topics as the enormous size of some Ice Age animals and how DNA analysis is revolutionizing our knowledge of them. You'll even discover sites where you can view remains of these fascinating creatures today. This 7 1/2 " x 9 1/2" paperback has 226 pages that are packed with detailed information about these mysterious creatures. See table of contents at the bottom of this page. Ian M. Lange, author.
