This chapter presents ecological, physiological, and behavioral features of different animals, including birds and reptiles. Some of these discussions explain extremes in size and shape, while others describe common physiological responses such as panting and shivering. Still others present specific behaviors that are readily observable, including living in groups and walking on walls. Taken together, these topics give a sense of the range of observations one can make about different animals.

Keywords:   mammals, vertebrates, size, shape, extremes, panting, physiological responses
