Welcome to the Australian Outback! As your jeep bumps along an empty road, the dry, dusty land all around you bakes in the heat. But the Outback is full of life, from a frilled lizard snapping at bush flies to a kangaroo family munching on grass. Day and night in the Outback, the hunt is on to find foodand 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 Outback? Will you … Run with a pack of dingos? Lurk with a saltwater crocodile as it stalks its prey? Swoop through the night sky with a ghost bat? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
