There are literally hundreds of remarkable mammals living in the rainforest, from the magnificent jaguar to the spectacled bear and the cleverly-camouflaged sloth. This book looks at the variety of mammals - their homes, food and threats - living in this amazing environment. Special "links" boxes highlight the relationships of rainforests and mammals to mammals around the world. "Rainforest secrets" panels and "fascinating facts" boxes give you amazing facts and stories about the forest.
