How Elephants and Other Animals Hear the Earth (Superior Animal Senses) (Paperback)
Elephants are able to sense an earthquake before it happens. How are they able to do this? They can feel the seismic vibrations in the earth through their trunk and their feet. Readers learn how elephants use these vibrations to communicate with each other and sense danger. Fun, memorable facts presented throughout the text address elephants and other animals with similar sensory adaptations, including snakes and spiders. Informative text and a detailed graphic organizer introduce readers to important science curriculum concepts, such as animal adaptations and seismic waves. Vibrant photographs of a variety of animals keep readers engaged as they learn.
