Description

So there are small, brilliantly coloured birds feeding from large blossoms on the slopes of the Andes which look very like the sunbirds of the Himalayas, but which belong to a quite different family of birds, and the heavy-fleeced sure-footed beast of burden that the Andean people use is the llama, a kind of camel, and not a kind of cow like the Himalayan yak.

By the time you have trudged up to 2500 metres, the rhododendrons, in their turn, have disappeared except for a few patches on sheltered slopes.An example is species of birds on some of these islands who, because of their remoteness, face no predators and so over the years, have lost their ability to fly simply because they do not need to anymore. I watched the first episode the same day I finished this and it actually included one or two examples of things that I’d read in this book, which was awesome, especially as one of them was footage of turtles laying eggs on a beach in Costa Rica. Below them, the metallic core of the earth is hotter still and this causes slow, churning currents in the layers above, which rise up along the line of the ridge and then flow out on either side, dragging the basaltic ocean floor with them like solid skin on custard.

Attenborough also highlights those species that have perfected the art of camouflage, including phasmids.Fortunately the book was not damaged but in my opinion the envelope used wasn't fit for purpose and appeared to be the cheapest one they could get away with using. You might well suppose that the source of the river lay on the nearside, southern flanks of this immense barrier of rock and ice.
