A Nile River Food Chain: A Who-Eats-What Adventure (Follow That Food Chain)
Welcome to the Nile River in Egypt! As you slosh through the river bank and puddle-jump the marshy areas, you can hear birds calling, frogs peeping and little scurrying sounds from the underbrush. The Nile River is full of life, from Egyptian vultures snatching ostrich eggs to golden jackals gnawing on a dead rabbit. Day and night in the Nile River delta, the hunt is on to find food - and to avoid becoming someone else's next meal. All the 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 river delta? Will you . . . Swoop through the air with an Egyptian slit-faced bat hunting insects? Stalk for frog dinner through thick reeds with a swamp cat? Scavenge for road kill with a striped hyena? Follow all three chains and many more on this who-eats-what adventure!
