Attack of the Burmese Pythons

Attack of the Burmese Pythons

Burmese pythons lay eggs, just like many snakes. Female Burmese pythons
commonly lay a clutch, or group, of about 35 eggs, but some can lay more than
100 at a time! The eggs' shells are leathery and soft, and feel like they're filled

Burmese pythons are a popular kind of pet snake in the United States. However, they’re meant to live in India and parts of China—not Florida. These huge snakes can harm people and generally disrupt the food chain of southern Florida enough for them to be called an invasive species. This book introduces readers to the concept of “native” and “invasive” animals through the facts surrounding the spread of Burmese pythons. The main content covers how the snakes came to be in southern Florida, their harm to the environment, and modern ways conservation groups are trying to stop their spread.

Red Tailed Hawk vs Burmese Python

Red Tailed Hawk vs  Burmese Python

FACE-OFF! Imagine if a red-tailed hawk saw a Burmese python with its powerful
eyesight. If the hawk flew down and attacked the snake, what do you think would
happen? Would the hawk's speed be a match for the python's much larger size?

A bird and a snake may not seem like they could have much in common, but the red-tailed hawk and Burmese python are both skilled hunters. In a fight, they'd each bring quite a bit to the table. This thrilling book is packed with information that compares and contrasts these two carnivores. Eye-catching photographs help readers visualize these two animals in a battle. Habitats and adaptations are just a couple of the important science concepts that this exciting book discusses.

A brilliantly funny exploration of the twin mysteries of parenthood and families from the Pulitzer Prize winner and New York Times–bestselling author of Insane City. In his New York Times–bestselling I’ll Mature When I’m Dead, Dave Barry embarked on the treacherous seas of adulthood, to hilarious results. What comes next? Parenthood, of course, and families. In uproarious, brand-new pieces, Barry tackles everything from family trips, bat mitzvah parties and dating (he’s serious about that title: “When my daughter can legally commence dating—February 24, 2040—I intend to monitor her closely, even if I am deceased”) to funeral instructions (“I would like my eulogy to be given by William Shatner”), the differences between male and female friendships, the deeper meaning of Fifty Shades of Grey, and a father’s ultimate sacrifice: accompanying his daughter to a Justin Bieber concert (“It turns out that the noise teenaged girls make to express happiness is the same noise they would make if their feet were being gnawed off by badgers”). Let’s face it: families not only enrich our lives every day, they drive us completely around the bend. Thank goodness we have Dave Barry as our guide!
