Never Smile at a Monkey: And 17 Other Important Things to Remember
When it comes to wild creatures, everyone knows that there are certain things you just don't do when you come in contact with them. You don't pull a crocodile's tail or invite a rattlesnake into your room. But would you know not to pet a platypus? Its poisonous hind legs make this odd animal a very dangerous mammal. Or would you know not to stare at a spitting cobra? One shot of its venom can cause its victim to become blind. Should you come across a bear cub, be sure not to cuddle it...the baby bear might not bother you, but its mother is another story. Creatures have all sorts of ways of protecting themselves, their families, and their habitats, and in this dynamic and fascinating picture book by Steve Jenkins, readers will learn just how dangerous a creature can be when it is threatened-or even when it looks completely harmless...
