Prickly Protection

Stingers, Barbs, and Quills

Series: Animal Defense!

By Avery Elizabeth Hurt and Susan K. Mitchell

Animals have evolved a wide range of defenses to keep them safe from other animals that want to eat them. This volume explores the many defenses animals employ to protect themselves, including porcupine quills, insect stingers, and the flying hooves of zebras. Through full-color photographs and fun facts that accompany the fascinating and informative text, readers will learn how animals use their unique designs to survive another day. Sidebars provide more details on interesting points and a list of recent books and educational websites encourages students to do more in-depth research of their own.
