  • Interest Level: Grade 3 - Grade 6
  • Reading Level: Grade 2

Did you know that there’s a beetle that spends its days making balls of elephant dung, and then rolling them around? Or that African wild dogs will “serve up” a meal of regurgitated food for a hungry fellow pack member? Or that a male hippopotamus will swirl his tail like a pinwheel to spread his poop far and wide to mark his territory? In this gross fest of animal behavior, readers will be having so much fun reading about the horrible and bizarre that they won’t even realize how much science is splattered, spread over, featured on every page!
