Overview

When does a death adder waggle its tail? Which snake has the longest fangs?

How does a thorny devil try to trick predators? Why does a frilled lizard hop like
a kangaroo?

Amazing Snakes and Reptiles is a fact-packed introduction to 44 fascinating animals. From the flying lizard that can’t actually fly to the mata mata that kills by sucking prey into its mouth, this book explores all kinds of reptiles from all around the world.

Inside you’ll learn that the tail of the shingleback skink looks like its head to trick predators, that the green anole can cut off its tail and grow a new one, and that the black mamba is the fastest snake in the world. And did you know that American alligators hiss at hooting car horns because they mistake them for the sounds of rival alligators?
