The Nile crocodile is one of the biggest reptiles on earth. But it starts to grow in a tough, leathery egg that its mother lays. When it comes out of its egg, it is about a foot long. It has around 50 brothers and sisters that hatch, too. How does the mother crocodile take care of her babies? What do the young crocodiles eat?
In A Crocodile Grows Up you will learn the answers to those and may other questions. The answers come in different forms: the story, the information boxes on each page, the realistic illustrations, the Nile Crocodile diagram, the map, and the glossary.
