Animals that live mainly in high places are contrasted with those that stay close to or under the ground. Pandas climb about in bamboo trees munching leaves for ten or more hours per day. Brown bears find their food in low places, eating berries and salmon. Tree squirrels build nests high in trees, while ground squirrels dig deep holes for their homes. Mountain goats living on steep mountain ledges are contrasted with goatfish searching for food on the ocean floor. Spotted leopards rest high in tree branches while lions snooze most of the day away low in the grass. Red-eyed tree frogs climb rain forest plants, but bullfrogs hide low in the water. Fruit bats hang upside down from cave ceilings while prairie dogs live in underground colonies. Full-color photographs that fill the pages with vivid images are the main attraction of the book. Includes a fact page, a glossary, a bibliography, a list of websites, and an index. Part of the "A+ Books" series. Reviewer: Phyllis Kennemer, Ph.D.
