In the animal kingdom, it’s essential to have a good means of defense when something bigger than you wants to eat you. In this book, readers will meet a lizard that squirts blood from its eyes at predators. A seabird chick that projectile vomits on an approaching enemy. And a host of animals that use slime, their poop, and other bizarre means of defense to stay safe. Packed with essential life sciences information, this gross fest of all things defense and disgusting will have readers laughing, making ewwwwwwwww noises, but most importantly, turning the pages and reading!
