Rated 5 out of 5 by from Creepy, scary but always awesome... reptiles This excellent non-fiction book is part of a series that I am positive kids will enjoy. It is packed full of detailed photos and reptilian profiles that will bring these extraordinary creatures to life right in front of your eyes. The book highlights twenty infamous reptiles and elaborates on how they use their fangs to crush, pierce, munch or even poison their meals. The photos are very graphic and prove that a picture is worth more than a thousand words. Some of the documented reptiles you will be familiar with and some will be foreign but all in all after reading the book you will understand why those specified are in the top 20 range. Reptiles have survived for thousands, perhaps million of years, using their unique survival skills to do so. Some of the reptilian species use camouflage to hide in plain sight while others use their brute power and might to live on another day. This book is very interesting as well as educational and it would be perfect to use as research for a project on reptiles. Kids will return again and again to ogle the magnificence of these cold-blooded, mostly egg-laying, super fascinating creatures. Some will find them creepy, others will find them downright scary, but I am convinced that all kids (and adults) will agree that reptiles are truly amazing to behold.
