Maxed Out!: Gigantic Creatures from the Past (All Aboard Science Reader - Level 2)by Ginjer L Clarke
Synopses & Reviews
Packed with ancient giants!
Dinosaurs aren't the only animals that roamed the earth during the prehistoric era. There was the Archelon, the largest turtle ever, measuring over 13 feet, and the Argentavis, the largest flying bird ever recorded, weighing in at over 140 pounds! Author Ginjer L. Clarke packs Maxed Out! with facts about humongous animals from this time period.
Did you know that the luna moth only flutters around at night--or that is has a wingspan as wide as a bowl of soup? This reader is packed with interesting facts about all the creepy animals that we never get to see during the daytime, like the barn owl, the blind cave fish, and the vampire squid.
Talk about a BIG catch! The 25-foot squid hauled in by a fishing boat off the coast of New Zealand in December 1997 was one of the most amazing stories of that year! Here's a fascinating look at the giant squid, cephalopods in general, and the implications of this extra-ordinary discovery--written in conjunction with The American Museum of Natural History.
