That Slimes and ScaresBook - 2001
Go up close and look skin--deep--because skin is one of the most important parts of any animal's body. And, wild creatures have an amazing selection of "natural coverings." An Australian thorny devil "drinks" through the grooves in its flesh. Each elephant has wrinkles in its lower leg as unique as a human's fingerprints. A bat's rubbery flesh allows it to fly. Skin that's armored, furry, spiny, rough, slimy, alarming, and perfect for a disguise: you'll find out about it all!
