Brains are awesome, and a little gross, making them a perfect topic for kids! Featuring 251 animal brain facts, Get the Scoop on Animal Brains digs deep and scoops out tons of fun facts about how animals use their brains to eat, find shelter, avoid predators, and survive. Did you know octopuses are multi-taskers? Since two-thirds of their neurons can be found in their arms, these marvelous creatures can crack open shellfish with one arm while doing something completely different with their others! Did you know crows have remarkable memory and can recall the faces of humans that pose a threat to them? Or that bees can communicate with other bees through a series of waggle dances? These are just three of the hundreds of amazing things you will learn about animals and their brains in this fascinating, fully illustrated book.
