Hissssss! Watch out for that snake! This book takes adventurous readers on a quest into the world of the boa constrictor. Students will discover a slithery way of life as they learn about the boa's impressive size, mouthful of sharp teeth, and special senses such as its scent-detecting forked tongue. Full-color photos give kids an opportunity to identify these heavy-bodied reptiles by their beautiful scale colors and patterns. Readers will also observe how sneaky boa constrictors use their natural camouflage to disappear from sight! A range map supplements chapter information about the surprising places these well-known snakes live. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index compliment the chapter text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
