From popping off a tail to rolling around in dung to farting to send a message, this funny and informative nonfiction picture book shows the many unusual ways animals adapt to their surroundings!

Animals survive and thrive in astounding ways: they trick, trap, and fry predators; feed on other animals' poop and skin; and use electric zaps, slime, and other unexpected methods to communicate.

Featuring animals like Komodo dragons, bombardier beetles, and capuchin monkeys, this fact-filled book explores the surprising, exciting, and sometimes hilarious ways that animals adapt.
