Part of the fun of reading a book about animals is learning about the animals!  Whether or not you read Red Slider, use the links to the left to learn more about the animals featured in the book.  Below are some photos of the sort of habitat in which you might find these animals.  These photos were taken at one of the author's favorite spots, Teatown Lakes.
