"Beneath the Skin, Scale, Fur & Feather" is a coloring book with anatomical illustrations that teach the basics of anatomy to aspiring veterinarians. Multiple chapters will share the anatomy of the skull, arms, eyes, heart and other critical organ systems.
"Beneath the Skin, Scale, Fur & Feather" presents anatomy to students in a fun and original way. In each chapter, students explore a structure of the body in dogs and then learn how this organ system has adapted in other animals. For example, in chapter two, we look at the arms (front legs or forelimbs) and see how the structure of the arm changes based on how the animal moves – either on land, in the air, or in water. Students see that animals have the same bones but they all look different!
Each illustration is original artwork. These beautiful and precise medical illustrations were created just for "Beneath the Skin, Scale, Fur & Feather" and can’t be found in any other publication. The team also worked hard to go beyond illustrations of dogs and other domestic animals to show students the structures of a wide variety of exotic animals like elephants, anteaters, bats and alligators have adapted
Beneath, the Skin, Scale Fur and Feather doesn’t just teach anatomy. Through its “Did You Know” and “Fun Fact” call outs, students learn interesting facts on function, medical conditions, behavior and so much more.
