A wombat scoops and sweeps with powerful paws to dig an underground maze. A potter wasp sculpts damp clay to make a dainty lidded jar with a snack inside. A titmouse winds and weaves grasses to build a sturdy padded nest... with a drawbridge. Animal Architects shows creatures that can tunnel, bore wood, weave, and mould clay; animals that can adjust for temperature and comfort, make boltholes for times of danger, store food for their offspring. It celebrates the engineers and architects of the animal world.
