The ancient Greeks imagined creatures that were half one animal and half another. These mythical creatures may not exist, but animal hybrids do! Both nature-made and human-made hybrids are fascinating animals. While some would argue that hybrid animals are a threat to at-risk species, others claim that they are nature's way of speeding up the adaptation process. Students will enjoy the detailed text and the supporting text features. The book and lesson are also available for levels Z1 and Z2.
