Synopsis

Exploring Nature: Incredible Lizards Discover the Astonishing World of Chameleons, Geckos, Iguanas and More, with Over 190 Pictures by Mark O'Shea

This title helps you discover the astonishing world of chameleons, geckos, iguanas and more, with over 190 pictures. You can explore the extraordinary natural history of lizards. You can learn about their survival tactics in the wild, such as the toughened skin of the rough-scaled plated lizard and the bloodthirsty appetite of the Komodo dragon. You can see how some species regrow their tails after losing them to predators, while others change appearance to blend in with their surroundings. Mark O'Shea, a renowned reptile expert and adventurer, takes you on location with him around the world and gives tips on how to go lizard-watching yourself. It is packed with over 190 exciting images, many of them taken in the field by the author himself. It is ideal for home or school use by 8- to 12-year-olds. Find out why lizards are more numerous and successful than any other group of reptiles and trace their evolution - from dinosaurs, pterosaurs and ichthyosaurs to the rich diversity of species in existence today. On the way, you will witness some amazing tactics for survival, such as how lizards' bodies and watertight skins work so that they can live on minimal amounts of food and water. Meet the 'Jesus lizard' that walks on water, the glider that sails through the air from tree to tree, and the horned lizard of Texas that shoots blood from its eyes.
