National Geographic Animals

The Overview:
From aardvarks to zebras and hundreds of creatures in between, this comprehensive encyclopedia is full of fun facts, original videos, and National Geographic's beautiful photography.

The Site:
Hundreds of mammals, reptiles, amphibians, fishes, insects, and birds are profiled with photos, videos, and species distribution maps.  Quirky—but accurate—size comparisons compare the animal to common objects like a paperclip, a teacup, a human, or a bus.  An embedded animal search widget on every page lets users easily find the animal they are looking for in the comprehensive encyclopedia.
