MongoosesBook - 2015
Mongooses, with their long body, short legs, and pointy snouts, are cute furry animals, unless you're an enemy. Then, it doesn't matter how dangerous the situation, they aren't afraid to fight. Mongooses are famous for going head-to-head with venomous king cobras and adders! Readers will discover the adaptations that equip mongooses for these battles, including lightning-quick reflexes and razor-sharp teeth. They'll also learn some odd quirks about some mongoose species, such as how they crack open eggs by throwing them at rocks. A habitat map, graphic organizer, and photographs of mongooses in action will make readers feel like mongoose experts.
