Gravity is an invisible yet powerful force that pulls people, animals, and objects down to the ground so that they don't float into the air. As powerful as gravity is, however, there are certain animals that are able to break free of its forceful pull. Some do so by flapping their wings to fly incredibly high. Others shoot out from under the water. Still others stick to ceilings without any glue. In this book, young readers will discover eight of these extraordinary animals--and the secrets behind their gravity-defying powers. Eye-popping photos and clear, simple text bring these one-of-a-kind creatures to vivid life.

Gravity-Defying Animals

This entry in the Animals with Super Powers series features eight creatures with the remarkable ability to flaunt the very laws of physics. Geckos can stick to ceilings, walls, and even slippery windows. Though they may not be able to leap over tall buildings in a single bound, the bar-headed goose has been seen flying over the uninhabitable Himalayas. And, in a discovery sure to elicit widespread terror, there is a species of snake that can glide from tree to tree. With lots of full-color photos and well-written text, each two-page spread introduces an animal, provides some facts and figures, and highlights key terms, which are all clearly defined in a helpful glossary. Animals are a winning topic to begin with, and the eyecatching images and unusual examples in this offering only up the ante.
