Mimicry and Relationships
It's a jungle out there! to survive, animals have developed many different mechanisms for protecting themselves from predators and for fooling prey. Animal Attack and Defense, which is organized based on scientific groupings, focuses on animals with impressive and extraordinary survival techniques. Young readers learn about why an animal has a particular defense feature – like a skunk's smell – how it uses it, and how that feature helps it survive. Books in the series provide habitat and geographic location information for all the profiled animals. Text in spreads makes the books kid-friendly, and full-color photographs with informative captions enhance the text. the series also features a glossary and index.
