Do you use 22 sensitive tentacles to discover food? Humans use their senses every day, but they don’t rely on them to hunt prey like the animal kingdom! Discover the interesting ways animals use their senses of sight, smell, hearing, tasting, touching, and extreme senses to find their next meal in the beautifully illustrated, easy-to-read Sensing Their Prey series.

An eye-catching, informative series featuring detailed illustrations to grab young readers’ attention! * Age-appropriate Art * Reinforced Library Binding Glossary * Fun Facts. Looking Glass Library is an imprint of Magic Wagon, a division of ABDO Group. Grades PreK-4.
