Wildlife veterinarian and super-fashionista Dr. Gabby Wild takes young readers on a journey around the world to discover amazing animals and how to care for them.
Travel the continents to meet some of Earth's most incredible critters through the eyes of a windblown, adventurous wildlife veterinarian. Join Dr. Gabby Wild as she performs dental work on a jaguar, teaches a baby bird to fend for itself, and gives a chimp a check-up. Learn about animal anatomy and behaviors, diets, families, and the dangers they face in the wild. Get up close-and we do mean CLOSE-to more than 80 animals that are both familiar and not so familiar, including regal lions, playful pandas, fearsome Gila monters, and creepy tarantulas. Examine world maps to learn about amphibians, wild cats, and primates across the globe. Read about some special human-animal relationships as well as challenges that arise when they share a habitat. Then learn how people are working to save and protect endangered species. And for your final thrill, find out how YOU can become a wildlife vet, too!
