100 things you should know about Mammals is just that – 100 things you should know about mammals. (Or actually, 100+ – there were extra ‘did you know’ sections.) I don’t know why Ann Kay chose these 100 facts as the most important, but, you know, that’s her call.

Pg. 28 shows a picture of a tiger attacking an antelope.
Pg. 34 shows a picture of a vampire bat bleeding a horse.
