Animals inhabit nearly every environment on Earth, including many places that seem utterly inhospitable to life. Segments cover animal adaptations in the vast Asian deserts, the watery homes of crocodiles, and the lofty domain of birds. CROCODILE FEARS: Reveals the adaptations that make crocodiles dangerous to prey underwater and on land. DENIZENS OF DRY LANDS: Focuses on the remarkably hardy creatures that thrive in the arid grasslands of the Mongolian steppe, the extreme temperatures of the Gobi desert, and the sandy expanses of India. BUILT TO FLY: Explains how the bodies of birds are specially adapted for flight. As they experience these daunting climates and conditions, students learn about the developments that enable life to flourish in some of Earth's most challenging environments.

Only available in the US.
