Giant Pacific Octopus: The World’s Largest Octopus

Out of stock
Striking photographs, kid-friendly descriptions, and fascinating facts make this introduction to an octopus that is “about as long as a minivan” approachable and informative. Each spread covers a different aspect of the animal, including its habitat, food sources, predators, and defense tactics. Text boxes outlined in sucker-covered tentacles add context to the large, labeled photos. For example, a giant Pacific octopus is able to blend in with its surroundings by making its skin appear smooth or bumpy. Back matter offers details and size comparisons of other large octopuses, a photo glossary, recommendations for further reading, a link to the publisher’s Web site, and an index.
