Find out all about reptiles in this unprecedented exploration of the incredible creatures in the world around us. The series is divided according to animal classifications in order to establish a firm scientific basis for each title. This differentiates the series from other animal attack/weird animal series and covers aspects of the curriculum in a more comprehensive way. Each title focuses on weird and wonderful examples of creatures that are not the norm after an introduction describing the animals normal characteristics. The titles also include predatory behavior, but not as the main thrust of the book. A variety of text types such as newspaper reports are used to represent real life stories about the creatures covered. A conservation angle is also included to demonstrate how animals are in danger from humans and our activities and to stress what needs to be done to protect them and their environments.
