by Kathleen Connors

Part of a Series: Really Wild Reptiles.

Children may already know about chameleons’ awesome ability to change colors, but this appealing volume also offers lots of fascinating, lesser-known information about these popular reptiles. Chameleons’ tongues, for example, can be nearly twice the length of their bodies. And their tongues are fast and strong, too—so fast and strong, in fact, that large chameleons can catch young birds with them. Each spread introduces a facet of chameleon life and pairs it with a striking full-page color photograph. Captions and text boxes add interesting facts along the way (“One kind of chameleon . . . spends 8 to 9 months in its egg, but only lives 4 to 5 months after hatching.”). Back matter includes a glossary, recommended sources, and an index.
