Abstract:

Reptiles have been crawling over the Earth for hundreds of millions of years, leading today to more than 6,500 species. Meet reptiles that run, swim, climb, and even fly. Incredible blue tongues, blood-shooting eyes, and poisoned-filled hinged, fangs are just a few of the features these amazing animals possess. Discover what makes reptiles unique from different animal groups, and gather the facts about how they hunt, breed, and live. Find out how being cold-blooded affects how these animals go about their daily lives. And see how colors, chemicals, and even body parts can become weapons for hunting or defense. How have reptiles survived for so long, and what is their biggest threat today? It s time to raise the scales and claw your way into the world of remarkable reptiles. Each title in this series contains color photos, charts showing salaries for career areas, tips on key educational steps toward the career, and back matter including: an index, further reading lists for books and internet resources, and a series glossary. Mason Crests editorial team has placed Key Icons to Look for throughout the books in this series in an effort to encourage library readers to build knowledge, gain awareness, explore possibilities and expand their viewpoints through our content rich non-fiction books. Key Icons are as follows: Words to Understand are shown at the front of each chapter with definitions. These words are then used in the prose throughout that chapter, and are emboldened, so that the reader is able to reference back to the definitions- building their vocabulary and enhancing their reading comprehension. Sidebars are highlighted graphics with content rich material within that allows readers to build knowledge and broaden their perspectives by weaving together additional information to provide realistic and holistic perspectives. Text Dependent Questions are placed at the end of each chapter. They challenge the readers comprehension of the chapter they have just read, while sending the reader back to the text for more careful attention to the evidence presented there. Research Projects are provided at the end of each chapter as well and provide readers with suggestions for projects that encourage deeper research and analysis. A Series Glossary of Key Terms is included in the back matter contains terminology used throughout the series. Words found here broaden the readers knowledge and understanding of terms used in this field.
