Back Off! Animal Defenses: Slimy Animals

Written by Nadia Higgins

In Slimy Animals, early fluent readers learn about animals such as the hagfish, fulmar, and sea cucumber that protect themselves against predators with slimy goo. Vibrant, full-color photos and carefully leveled text engage young readers as they explore the unique adaptations of these slimy animals. An infographic shows how ribbon worms produce slime, and an activity offers kids an opportunity to extend discovery.
