Description

Packed with striking photography, Eyewitness Reptile explores one of nature’s most fascinating animal species.

Become an eyewitness to how reptiles sense the world, move and use camouflage in this picture-led reference guide that will take you on a visual tour of these scaly creatures. Children will be mesmerized by  the many different types of reptile species, from small pets to large crocodiles.

This beautifully illustrated guide for kids aged 9+ gives an insight into how crocodiles look after their young, how lizards store fat in their tails, and how chameleons swivel their eyes. Using striking full-color photographs of snakes, crocodiles, lizards, and turtles, this book offers a unique eyewitness view of these amazing creatures.

Throughout the pages of this newly-revised book on reptiles, you can expect to find: 

- A fresh new look; new photographs, updated information, and a new "eyewitness" feature.
- Amazing facts, updated diagrams, statistics, and timelines.
- Brand new eyewitness accounts from experts in the field.

Eyewitness Reptile introduces the ultimate guide to these cold-blooded creatures, where you can find out how snakes are charmed, how geckos walk upside down, why crocodiles swallow stones, and how a snake is milked of venom. Children can learn all about how an anole lizard frightens its enemies by displaying its bright red beard and watch a boa constrictor swallowing its prey whole. This all-encompassing guide to reptiles is a must-have for curious children aged 9+ with a thirst for learning, as well as teachers, parents and librarians.
