Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“These are hands down the cutest books ever to grace my shelf. For those who need a surge of oxytocin, it’s impossible to pick up either one without smiling ear to ear.”
—DiscoverMagazine.com

"Page after page of baby tigers, otters, penguins, and apes so overbearingly adorable it hurts just to look at them.”
—DailyCandy.com

Zooborns pulls off the difficult task of being cute and interesting for people of all ages while also being informative.”
—BlogCritics.com

“The book’s 150 pages is barely enough to contain the sickening cuteness of dozens of snuggly young animals. . . a book rich in both content and visually stunning photography.”
—DeepSeaNews.com

Read an Excerpt

Names: Tai and Pip

Species: Red Panda

Home: Edmonton Valley Zoo, Canada

D.O.B.: 5/26/2008

Status: Vulnerable

Jesse Popowicz / City of Edmonton

Still sporting the grayish fur of babyhood, Tai and Pip will soon develop the thick, rusty-colored fur of adult red pandas.

The word panda means bamboo-eater in Nepalese, so it’s no surprise to learn that these raccoon-sized critters love to munch on tasty bamboo leaves. Scientists continue to debate their relationship to another famous bamboo-eater, the much larger black-and-white giant panda.

Wild red panda populations are threatened by deforestation and poaching for their fur. In China, red panda tails are prized for making hats!

Name: Sasa

Species: Banded Mongoose

Home: Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo, Indiana

D.O.B.: 11/26/2009

Status: Least Concern

Cheryl Piropato / Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo

Sasa is one of six siblings, including brothers Shangaza, Shitua, Sitini, and Shukuru, and sister, Sena.

Banded mongooses are champion chompers, with needlelike teeth for eating insects, lizards, and small rodents, which are excavated with sharp claws.

Extremely social, mongooses are rarely alone. Even when sleeping, they pile together in a furry heap.

Species: Loggerhead Sea Turtle

Home: SeaWorld Orlando, Florida

D.O.B.: August 2009

Status: Endangered

Just one week old when Hurricane Bill struck, these loggerhead sea turtle hatchlings never completed their dangerous journey to the sea. Instead, they were scooped up by park rangers and sent to SeaWorld Orlando’s Animal Rescue and Rehabilitation Team for a few days of pampering until the seas calmed down.

Though these little loggerheads made it to safety, many do not. Street lights and human activity can lure hatchlings toward traffic instead of the ocean.

In the United States, conservationists patrol beaches to locate turtle nests, count eggs, and protect them from beach visitors, dogs, and raccoons.

Jason Collier/SeaWorld

After falling from her mother’s pouch, little Rooby was quickly rescued by zookeepers. But keepers were unable to determine which female ’roo had lost her joey, so they fashioned a fleece pouch for Rooby and successfully nursed her with a bottle.

Darlene Stack / Assiniboine Park Zoo

The largest of all kangaroos, red kangaroos can be found in nearly all parts of Australia.
