Wings, Paws, Scales and Claws: All About Animal Bodies

How is your body different and the same to a giraffe’s? What characteristics make a mammal a mammal, or a reptile a reptile? In this title, readers will turn their investigative skills to studying animal bodies and learning how scientists group animals. Packed with fascinating facts and fun challenges, students will meet a host of animals including blue whales, the world’s largest spider, great white sharks and colourful chameleons. How does a polar bear’s fat help it survive in the freezing Arctic? Is a bat a mammal or a bird? And can you tell whether a minibeast is a spider or an insect?
