Essential topics covered in 100 Facts Reptiles and Amphibians: - How reptiles and amphibians adapt to different climates and living conditions - The hunting methods they use and their diet- Leaping, crawling and camouflaging themselves from danger Examples of 'I don't believe it' fascinating facts: - The male South American Surinam toad is quite an acrobat. When mating underwater, it has to press the eggs onto its mate's back. The eggs remain there until they hatch. - One African gecko has such thin skin over its ear-openings that if you were to look at it with the openings lined up, you would see light coming through from the other side.- Crocodile and alligator eggs only grow if they are kept warm, and the amount of heat affects whether the eggs develop into males or females. Below 30C, the eggs all develop into females! Activities to make learning accessible and interactive include: - Quiz question: How do poisonous snakes inject venom (poison) into their prey?- Make your own slithery snake using lots of cotton reels. First paint them in different colours, then join the reels together with string to make the body. Use some card to make eyes and a tongue- Make a mask of your favourite reptile or amphibian using a paper plate and some string Author: Ann KayConsultant: Camilla de la BedoyerePages: 48Age: 7+Dimensions: 9 X 12Format: Paperback with holographic foilISBN: 9781782095903
