Ok so the animals in this book are all wild so I'll excuse the piggy But the flamingo?? Is it because the roseate spoonbill was included and that bird is too much like the flamingo except for the beak? Anyway I did learn uite a bit about the animals included here I have to agree that the blobfish is pretty ugly but the picture in the book seems to be out of water and somewhere I think I read that blobfish look different in the water not uite so ugly I could be wrong though I do like like that the author provided information on threats to and predators of each animal Guess what's threatening most of them? Habitat destructionpeople One thing I wish the author had included is a size comparison chart In the photos all the animals are shown the same size yet if you look at the actual sizes stated on the right hand side of each 2 page spread some are tiny while others are huge For example the Hopkins' rose nudibranch looks so big in the photo but it's really only 810 of an inch to 12 inches in length eentsy I was excited to read that a new species of river dolphin was discovered in 2014 I have a particular fondness for the pink river dolphins of the I was also interested to read that the naked mole rat had the ability to stay cancer free Having cancer myself I'd love to know their secret I had never heard of red uakaris What's interesting about them is that the pinkerredder their faces are the healthier and therefore attractive to potential mates they will be One animal that was included that I didn't expect was the hippopotamus Apparently it oozes a pink sweat to protect itself from sunburn The most amazing critter in the book however was the pink fairy armadillo Now most armadillos are pretty big but this little thing is only 4 inches long pink on top with white on the bottom and kinda cute It looks like a cross between an armadillo a mole and a caterpillar I'd love to see a book like this for other colors of animals Wouldn't that be fun? I think young readers and older ones too will enjoy this book even without the flamingo Recommended Pinkalicious meets National Geographic in this nonfiction picture book introducing the weirdest wildest pinkest critters in the animal kingdom Some people think pink is a pretty color A fluffy sparkly princess y color But it's so much Sure pink is the color of princesses and bubblegum but it's also the color of monster slugs and poisonous insects Not to mention ultra intelligent dolphins naked mole rats and bizarre bloated blobfish Isn't it about time to rethink pink Slip on your rose colored glasses and take a walk on the wild side with zoologist Jess Keating author of How to Outrun a Crocodile When Your Shoes Are Untied and cartoonist David DeGrand A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids 2016 The 2016 Ambassador to Young People's Science and Nature books is unuestionably the blobfish Shelftalker Readers will never look at pink the same way Publishers Weekly
