Summary
In each book of the Our Wild World series, kids will find the real stories behind these mysterious creatures, and how they've earned their distinct reputations. Each begins with a brief section on reptile families and the differences and similarities between them, such as the differences between a snake with legs and a lizard with no legs Detailed information on habitat, diet, breeding, babies, socialization, dangers and life cycles are covered, highlighted by full-colour photos and Fun Facts throughout. Young readers will discover why alligators are sometimes called living bulldozers. They'll also find out what happens when a lizard loses its tail, what a rattlesnake's rattlers are made of, and which species of turtle can close its shell up like a box.
