Do you or your child face a beastly assignment on an obscure animal, such as the blue morpho butterfly or the mountain tapir? Have you ever wondered why hyenas laugh, if there really is a deer with fangs or what a vinegaroon is, anyway?

Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia is for you! The splendid 17-volume print encyclopedia of the same name is now accessible and fully searchable online. The electronic format offers print and e-mail capabilities as well as options to listen to articles (and even download them to an MP3 player), download articles as PDFs to an eReader and translate articles to any one of several languages— there's lots to monkey around with!

Like the print version, Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia contains both basic and in-depth information on thousands of animals, including bivalves, worms, insects, reptiles, birds and mammals. As well as illustrations, it provides information on animals' classification, habitat, ecology, distribution, life behavior and significance to humans— plenty of information for even the most dogged researcher!

With Grzimek's Animal Life Encyclopedia let your curiosity about animals take flight, investigate the questions that bug you and dive into the wealth of knowledge about the animal world.
