Summary, etc.:
There s a good reason why the thorny devil has a false head on its shoulders. It s an adaptation that developed to help protect the thorny devil when the reptile feels threatened. Most adaptations have a good explanation but that doesn t make some of them any less odd! From snakes shedding their skin a few times a year to the almost unbreakable shells of reptile eggs, reptile adaptations are made even more fascinating in this book through full-color, up-close photographs. In addition to cool adaptations, readers learn science curriculum topics such as the main features of reptiles, evolution, and life cycles.
