Skiing grasshoppers, cannibalistic snails, frogs that live far from any pond, daisies that grow into trees... The islands of New Zealand are home to an extra-ordinary society of animals and plants quite unlike any other on Earth. Some members are familiar to most of us - the ancient tuatara, the resourceful kiwi, the majestic pohutukawa. Others are less well known yet every bit as unique and worthy of our high regard.
This book celebrates a magnificent array of New Zealand wildlife treasure for the enjoyment of all who would be fascinated and inspired.
