Killer Species

Killer Species: Menace from the Deep by Michael P. Spradlin

As an aviary specialist, Emmet’s dad, Dr. Doyle, gets sent to do environmental work all around the country, so Emmet has no choice but to go along. Emmet is not happy to leave his beloved Montana for hot, humid, and mildew-scented Florida.

Once there, Dr. Geaux takes them to the Everglades lab, where she is the park superintendent, because they have found something unusual: an alligator with aviary qualities the likes of which would have been found in prehistoric times when dinosaurs roamed the earth. How did this animal get here and why?

It turns out that someone is dead set on restoring the Everglades to its natural state – going to the extreme of breeding snake-killing pterogators. But are the pterogators going to help the environment, or kill everything in it?

This story will leave you with your skin tingling from excitement. If you are an adventure-lover who enjoys a bit of science-fiction on the side, this book is for you! Read a sample chapter, and tell us how you like this book!

    This book that I found at my elementary school was not what I thought would be a good book that I would read because it was just at my second or third gade level but now after having it for six years.I gave it a chance that I didnt regret.
