Come with Australian Geographic on a voyage like no other through our planet's great habitats to experience what shapes the creatures living there.

This remarkable book will take you thousands of metres down into the lightless world of a Pacific Ocean abyss where the pressure is so immense it would flatten aeroplanes...but not the Mariana snailfish!

Then you'll be transported thousands of metres back up to where the special blood of bar-headed geese helps them cope with the lack of oxygen in the air over Mount Everest.

Discover how raucous howler monkeys survive 50m or more up tropical trees in the Amazon rainforest, and how addaxes and fennec foxes fend for themselves in the relentlessly searing heat of the Sahara Desert.

Dive with us to the colourful sponge gardens and coral wonderlands of the Great Barrier Reef and dare to tread with us underground through a world of giant insects, blind fishes and other troglodytes in the caves of Southeast Asia.
