Overview

Is a kangaroo more closely related to a wallaby or walrus? What does a bobcat have in common with a badger? Are all insects bugs? Do all birds fly? The books in the Animals in Order series will help you make sense of the animal kingdom. Each book focuses on a particular scientific grouping called an "order." You will discover that it is easier to learn about the traits and behaviors of animals if you first know which ones are most closely related.
