This title is suitable for ages 6-12. Certain sea slugs have developed a remarkable defensive adaptation - they can use the stinging cells of the sea anemones they eat to protect themselves.
Whether adapting over millions of years or in the blink of an eye, this book examines the ever-changing world of animals. Children will thrill at discovering: why animals need to adapt; animals that can 'see' using sounds; how animals use camouflage and mimicry to protect themselves; and how wild animals have adapted to habitat loss and learned to live in cities.
