Overview

Extreme Rainforest by Nam Nguyen, Sarah Hines Stephens

Rainforests cover only 6 percent of the Earth's surface, yet they support more than half of the world's plant and animal species. In this wet and often unstable environment, how do animals like the Jaguar, Giant Centipede, Common Vampire Bat, and the Harpy Eagle adapt for survival? With some tricks that sound like they'd be at home in the latest sci-fi-toxic skin, poison-injecting fangs, sonic muscles, and hidden wings are just a few of the astounding tools that they have at their disposal. With the most up-to-date information, and plenty of resources for further research, Extreme Rainforest is the ultimate exploration of this intense environment.
