Slither and Crawl Eye to Eye with Reptiles by Jim Arnosky


Slither and Crawl Eye to Eye with Reptiles by Jim Arnosky

Snake fangs, alligator claws, and turtle shells - all life size! Go belly down on the ground, eye to reptilian eye, with acclaimed naturalist Jim Arnosky. Through large gatefolds and marvellously detailed, realistic art, he takes kids (safely!) up close and personal with these slithery, crawly creatures. Arnosky explains how to identify venomous snakes and their harmless cousins, where to find a 200-pound lizard, how to avoid becoming an alligator's lunch, and much more. It's the perfect gift for a budding naturalist, animal lover, or artist.


* Arnosky's painterly eye and personal observations match handsomely in this face-to-face experience . . . handsome, informative.
