A Spiny Back and Green Scaly Skin (Iguana)
From a leathery, white egg, a tiny snout appears. Then a bright green head, skinny body, and a long, thin tail emerges. Who does this little baby belong to? The little creature hatching from her egg is a baby iguana, and one day this tiny reptile will be 1.2 metres long, with a powerful, muscular body – just like her mum and dad! As readers turn the pages, they will discover how a baby iguana is similar to and different from its parents. They will learn how baby iguanas find food and stay safe from predators. They will also see how the little lizard grows, changes and gets ready for her adult life in the trees of a rain forest.
