I remember reading a book about 20 years ago, containing lots of short stories (each one being only a couple of pages long). The stories were not connected to each other at all.
Each story have a different animal as the main character / protagonist, and I remember multiple of them being written in first person. The stories were not for kids but somehow realistic (the animals did not talk, dress, etc).
I can remember only a few more details:
- One of the stories was about a buffalo herd migration.
- One of them was about a trapped lynx biting off their leg to set himself free.
The title of the book was something like "The great book of animals" or something along those lines if I'm not wrong.
EDIT to answer some questions/add more details:
- It was written in Spanish, I don't know if it was a translation. The original title was "El gran libro de los animales"
- The book was large (around comic-size), hard covered and maybe 100-120 pages long, containing about 30-35 stories or so.
- I think there were animals from all over the world
- I read it in a public library, I already tried to go there again and asking about it but had no luck.
