Summary
"When the sun is shining brightly, people put on sunscreen or scurry inside to cool off. But how do wild animals react to the sizzling heat? Journey from your neighborhood to a field where an earthworm loops its long body into a ball underground, to a desert where a jackrabbit loses heat through its oversized ears, to a wetland where a siren salamander burrows into the mud to stay cool, and to a seashore where a sea star hides in the shade of a seaweed mat."--Amazon.com
Summary
Describes animals that live in the hottest climates and how they have adapted to survive, such as an earthworm that curls up underground, a desert jackrabbit that vents heat through oversized ears, and a siren salamander that burrows beneath wetland mud
