Series: Animal Secrets Revealed!

By Ana María Rodríguez

Why do they look so blood red? Discover why the hippo’s mysterious sticky sweat is something the hippo does not want to wash off. Then visit with the scientist who tried to uncover the secret of a mysterious organ inside the horse’s head. Hold your nose as you follow the scientist who found out why it is good for the giraffe to have such a strong scent. Accompany the scientist that combined humongous toys and hard work to find out what the lion’s mane is for. In the last stop in this adventure into animal secrets, you will spend time looking into animals’ eyes. Join the scientists who discovered why the eyes of carnivores and herbivores are shaped for success.
