Really Wild Reptiles
To some people around the world, the gecko is just another household pest. To others, geckos are household pets. This book introduces readers to all kinds of geckos, including the wild web-footed gecko of Africa's Namib Desert and the tokay gecko living in the tank at the pet store. While they learn fascinating science facts about the gecko life cycle, readers will enjoy full-color photographs of these cool reptiles walking on ceilings and smelling with their tongues. Fascinating fact boxes will grab future herpetologists and lovers of all things scaly--just like a gecko's "sticky" feet grab a tree branch.
