Asian Geographic Junior Issue 03/2018 (49)
In this issue, we dive into the world of sports and adventure! We find out the interesting stories behind ancient asian sports like jujitsu, kabaddi and pencak silat, then look at how the modern pastime of gaming became an Olympic event! We also have lots of fun facts about foods that would help you become an athletic superstar! After all the sporting excitement, we take an adventure to learn about the mysteries of mountains, caves and the ocean. Our final stop is the Komodo island, which is home to pink beaches, amazing marine life and the fearsome Komodo dragon. For some hands-on fun, we show you how to make a shark toy and some yummy basketball-themed cookies!
Dipping below the surface we enter a trippy, zero-gravity state beyond even Lewis Carroll’s wildest imagination. SDAA now brings you some of the most incredible, fantastical underwater seascapes, topography that defies logic, and the creatures that seem to have emerged from a fairy-tale land.
From mysterious mangroves, dramatic ravines, canyons and caves, fields of insanely colourful coral, and reef formations that seem to defy common sense.
We take you up close and personal to the beasts behind the myths (the dugongs and walruses), to trippy critters that even the Cheshire cat couldn’t have predicted (neon nudibranchs, of course!). Meet the real Moby Dick (Migaloo), and explore seascapes in Sulawesi that Salvador Dali might have dreamed up. Time to leave reason at the surface.
