Up a Tree
Every animal has its own special niche in its ecosystem, but to see some of the most interesting animals sometimes you have to grab a branch and look up. Arboreal animals have adapted to life in the trees to avoid predators and to gain access to food that ground-dwelling animals cannot reach. Readers will discover how koalas, flying lemurs, green tree pythons, tree kangaroos, and other animals have made a successful life high in the branches of trees. Informative text provides the reader with valuable data that supports the life science curriculum. A fact-spread highlights some of the more interesting bits of info on each animal while gorgeous, full-color photographs with in-depth captions round out this collection.
