Sharks, skates, shrimp, seahorses, and 30,000 other fishes swim through the worlds waterways. With that much variety, you just have to ask: what makes a fish a fish? This book helps answer the question! Filled with amazing X-rays, full-color photographs, and lively text, Curious About Fishes looks at underwater creatures inside and out. Inspired by a popular Smithsonian exhibition and the first childrens book to feature these extraordinary X-rays.
Did you know that the horned lizard squirts blood out of its eyes to scare off predators? Learn more about this creature as well as the leech, the naked mole rat, the hagfish, and many more creepy critters in this sickening and super science book. Not for the faint of heart, this revolting reader will be a favorite among boys and everyone interested in the strange and unusual!
