Animals Eating

Imagine eating only one big meal a year like an anaconda, or living on a totally liquid diet like a vampire bat! Whether their diets include plants, insects or other creatures, animals eat in some weird and fascinating ways. Kids can investigate a variety of animals, birds, insects, fish and reptiles --- from the unique tongue of the anteater to the amazing digestive system of the crocodile.

Examples of carnivores, herbivores and scavengers from around the world are included. Containing lots of interesting facts, activities and easy-to-do experiments, this title in the Animal Behavior series takes a resourceful approach to exploring animal life.
