Through an engaging text and amazing full-colour photography this book explores the intelligence, vulnerability, and charisma of this fascinating family. The most complex creatures in the animal kingdom, great apes communicate through an extensive system of hoots and calls; empathize with and console each other; and create tools for hunting and grooming. Each member has adapted its lifestyle in various ways to ensure its survival, from traveling large distances through dense rainforest in order to mate, to cleansing their bodies of toxins by eating certain leaves. Remarkable images from top wildlife photographers give the reader an intimate insight into the lives of these great apes.
