This informative and beautiful book looks at apex, or top, predators—animals that are not eaten by other animals in their habitats—and why these animals play a very important role in keeping food chains in balance. Students are introduced to the energy pyramid, which shows that there are fewer top predators than other animals and gives reasons why many of these animals are endangered. Humans, the most powerful top predators, are the biggest threat to these essential endangered animals. Teacher’s guide available.

What is a top predator?

“Posing a question about predators will spark debate between students about which animal is the most deadly, strong, quick, or fearsome. Providing facts about top hunters will help these same students substantiate their arguments for their favorites...Each of the diverse geographical locations is treated with lush photographs and captioning. This work captures the high interest subject matter of food chains and follows through with easily understood organization, engaging graphics, and clear prose. This book is an enjoyable, excellent addition to the science shelves.” —Arlington Independent School District, 08/12
