A Who-Eats-What Adventure in Asia

From the Series Follow That Food Chain

  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 5   ·  
  • Reading Level: Grade 4

Welcome to a Southeast Asian mangrove forest! As you wade through the tangle of mangrove roots, it’s hard to tell where the ocean ends and the land begins. The mangrove forest is humming with life. A dog-faced water snake lures a school of archerfish with her wiggling tail, and a macaque swings through the branches in search of mangrove apples. Day and night in the mangrove forest, the hunt is on to find food – and to avoid becoming someone else’s next meal. All living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animal to plant, plant to insect, and insect to animal. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the mangrove forest? Will you … Creep along the branches with a clouded leopard as it stalks a wild pig? Play with otters as they wait for their shellfish to open in the sun? Soar through the dark with a flying fox in search of flowers and seeds? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
