Animal Body-Part Regenerators

Growing New Heads, Tails, and Legs

Series: Amazing Animal Defenses

By Susan K. Mitchell

This title in the AMAZING ANIMAL DEFENSES series looks at animals that can lose a limb or other body part—and then re-grow it! From newts and salamanders to starfish and earthworms, the ability to regenerate a missing part is truly amazing. Author Susan K. Mitchell explains how these animals can do this, and how it helps them survive.
