Eye to Eye with Reptiles

Barnes and Noble Indiebound

Reptiles … close up!

Snake fangs, alligator claws, and turtle shells—all life-size! Go belly down on the ground, eye to reptilian eye, with acclaimed naturalist Jim Arnosky. Through large gatefolds and marvelously detailed, realistic art, he takes kids (safely!) up close and personal with these slithery, crawly creatures. Arnosky explains how to identify venomous snakes and their harmless cousins, where to find a 200-pound lizard, how to avoid becoming an alligator's lunch, and much more. It's the perfect gift for a budding naturalist, animal lover, or artist.

A 2009 Parents' Choice Recommended Nonfiction Book.
