Reptiles is a compilation of four stellar Our wild World titles: Alligators and Crocodiles, Lizards, Snakes, and Turtles. Each section includes detailed information on habitat, diet, breeding, babies, socialization, dangers, and life cycles for various species, highlighted by full-colour photos and Fun Facts throughout. Young readers will learn fascinating reptilian facts, like the fact that after a REALLY big meal, crocs may go two whole years without eating! Readers will also discover that some lizards lose their tails as a means of defence, that some turtles are so old they've been alive since the 1800s, and how some snakes are able to eat things bigger than their heads. Reptiles provides an exciting opportunity to understand the amazing lives of these big and small creatures. For research or enjoyment, young readers will turn to these kid-friendly books again and again.
