Kids who like animals will love ANIMAL EGGS! Discover amazing colors and dozens of shapes and sizes--pink, yellow, orange, red, purple eggs, spotted eggs, speckled eggs, see-through eggs, and so many more. Explore dozens of wild and wonderful ways animals protect their eggs: male fish that protect hundreds of eggs in their mouths, female turtles that make elaborate nests on seashores, and female spiders that spin a silk ball around their eggs and carry the ball with them everywhere. Marvel at the surprising places some animals lay their eggs--in fruit, on the bodies of other animals, and even in dog poop!--so the baby animals have food to eat from the minute they hatch. Features a dazzling variety of animals, including snakes, amphibians, insects, spiders, crustaceans, fish, birds, and even mammals, all in four-color photography. Includes glossary and index.
