Description

In the wild, some animals are predators, who hunt other animals. Predators have special traits that help them catch their prey. But not always! Prey animals have tricks they use to hide or stay safe from their ever-looming enemies. Learn all about the animals who hunt and are hunted, like the cheetah who stalks the gazelle and the Arctic wolf who stalks the caribou, just to name a few. This book will allow students to make observations of animals to compare the diversity of life in different habitats.
