Hissssss! Watch out for that snake! This book takes adventurous readers on a quest into the world of the king cobra. Students will discover a slithery way of life as they learn about the cobra's impressive size, fearsome fangs, and special senses such as the Jacobson's organ. Full-color photos give kids an opportunity to identify these hooded reptiles by their beautiful scale colors and patterns. Readers will also observe how the longest poisonous snakes use their natural camouflage to disappear from sight! A range map supplements chapter information about the surprising places this threatening king of snakes lives. Bolded glossary terms, phonetic spellings, and an index compliment the chapter text. Checkerboard Library is an imprint of ABDO Publishing Company.
