Synopsis: Famous for their unlucky penchant to become road kill, opossums are actually smart and adaptable. Opossums are known to walk along roads looking for dead animals. Unfortunately for them, one of their main defenses against predators works against them in this situation. When threatened, opossums play dead, which means they often get hit by cars. Full of details, scientific data, and gross facts about the opossums diet, this title will make readers see the scavenger in a new light.
From School Library Journal: Gr 3-6-The habits of animal scavengers may appeal to readers who like the disgusting side of nature. While these titles provide appropriately detailed descriptions of decayed flesh and rotten fruit, they also offer broader information about each creature, including life cycles, diet, and habitats. Strong layouts feature white print against black pages, along with angled frames that set off the photographs well. Captioned photos provide strong support for the main text, from several vivid close-ups of flesh flies in action to an appealing scene of a coyote pup copying its mother. Some titles feature more gore than others; raccoon foraging is much tamer than flesh-fly eating habits. However, the tone stays scientific rather than sensationalized, and the engaging images are solidly balanced with useful perspectives on the scavengers' role in their ecosystems.α(c) Copyright 2014.
