Because of its central location, Kansas is a meeting ground for North American animals. Six hundred ten species of land animals—birds, mammals, reptiles, and amphibians—live in or pass through Kansas. Boreal animals from the colder northern climes traverse the state on their way south- western creatures migrate east from the Rockies or reside in our arid grasslands- southern wildlife pushes north into Kansas on its way back from winter quarters or settles permanently in our Red Hills- and eastern species invade our deciduous forests. In Kansas Wildlife four of the states best wildlife photographers combine 130 photographs to create a colorful sampler of the states biodiversity—from delicate Cricket Frogs to ponderous Bison, from stately Great Blue Herons to madcap Chickadees, from cautious Ornate Box Turtles to high-strung Prairie Rattlesnakes.
