Rain Forest UndercoverBook - 2010
A hungry eagle flies slowly above the rain forest canopy, looking for its next meal. Will it spot the emerald boa coiled on a tree branch? It's tricky-these snakes are bright green with white markings, helping them blend in with the leaves. This camouflage often fools eagles into passing right by the snakes. The emerald boa stays safe by hiding in plain sight! Packed with fascinating facts and photos that will test children's detective skills, this book will engage emergent readers as they learn how emerald boas are adapted for survival. A section of the book highlights other snakes that are camouflaged to look like their leafy green homes.
