The Truth About the Most Dangerous Creatures on Earth
author: Nicola Davies
illustrator: Neal Layton
Sometimes nature can be nasty: snakes that spit poison, insects with exploding bottoms, and tigers that have you for dinner. Throughout the animal kingdom, creatures are equipped with lethal weapons, from finger-length fangs to toxic tentacles, and have ingenious ways of killing one another, from poisoning to dive-bombing to strangling and even electrocuting! Discover the murderous methods of attack and defense that make animals armed, dangerous, and deadly. Kids will sink their teeth into this fascinating look at nature’s fiercest creatures. Back matter includes an index and a glossary.
“Jam-packed with fascinating information with plenty of the ick factor to keep kids (and adults) turning the pages.” — San Francisco Book Review
