"The solitary leopard seal is a fierce hunter and a graceful swimmer. It spends most of its time swimming in the frigid waters of Antarctica. How does it survive in this extreme environment? With the help of color photos and fun facts, this accessible text explores how the leopard seal's life cycle, body structure, and behaviors have adapted to make it one of the most fearsome predators in one of the coldest places in the world. An engaging final activity encourages readers to use what they've learned to create an Antarctic food web."-- Provided by publisher.
