This fascinating book will thrill children with interesting facts, like how crickets hear with their legs, how bats and dolphins use echolocation, how elephants hear low-frequency sounds, and how sharks use their lateral line for sensing movement in water. This book, illustrated with magnificent photographs, is more interesting than a science-fiction novel!
About the author
What Senses Do Animals Have? (Big Science Ideas)Animals, like humans, draw information about their world through their senses. They use their senses, however, in ways that are different from ours. Echolocation, lateral lines and pheromones are some of the fascinating examples discussed to show animal senses at work. The book features colour photos, quizzes, a glossary and an index.
