Example from the book, to give a hint about style : "An alligator's skull has one simple kind of teeth. These teeth can't do any of the special jobs mammal teeth can. They can't take a bite out of an apple, like a person can. They can't shear off a big chunk of flesh, like a carnivoran can. They can't grind down plants, like a cow does. You might expect an alligator to have sharp teeth, but it doesn't. Its teeth are sharp enough to hold on to prey, but not nearly as sharp as a fox's or skunk's. They're more like blunt cones. Where to find : American alligators can be found in swamps, lakes, and rivers all along the southeastern US, and west to the southern tip of Texas".
