Rate this:
Welcome to a North American estuary! As you travel through the swamp's murky water, you wade through green duckweed and push ahead to the moss-draped trees at the water's edge. Everything seems green and still. But the estuary is full of life, from an American alligator lying in wait for a cottonmouth snake, to a swarm of biting midges stinging you. Day and night in the estuary, the hunt is on to find food - and to avoid becoming someone else's next meal. All living things are connected to one another in a food chain, from animal to animal, animal to plant, plant to insect, and insect to animal. What path will you take to follow the food chain through the estuary? Will you ...swoop through the sky with a barred owl chasing a mouse? Join a family of opossums munching on a poisonous snake? Nibble on some water plants with a swamp rabbit? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
