Julia Eccleshare's comment:
A great book to dip in and out of, this holds amazing facts about some truly terrifying mammals – and some that are much less so, this book captures the details of some of the most deadly wild life around us as well as those who do no harm. A tiger doesn’t need to eat every day but, when it does make a kill, it’s a big one! It can eat 27 kilos of meat a night which is more than 200 hamburgers. Jaguars, killer whales, wolverines are all pretty scary but the tiny bumblebee bat, one of the smallest of all mammals, does nothing more dangerous than emit a high pitched squeak.

About The Author
Steve Backshall is the hugely popular and fearless presenter of the BBC kids' series DEADLY 60 and LIVE AND DEADLY; his eventful life is well documented and he recently hit the headlines after being bitten by a Caiman live on camera! Steve travels the world to learn about the most inspiring predators, from boxing mantis shrimp to charging tigers. Steve also regularly writes articles for newspapers and magazines including the NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TRAVELER and BBC WILDLIFE and is an inspirational public speaker.
Steve says: "Though I seem to have found myself unwittingly lost in the world of wildlife television, I always wanted to be a writer. As a child it was Gerald Durrell, Jack London and Willard Price who inspired me, and I'm elated that Orion have given me the opportunity to follow in their more illustrious footsteps. I have so many incredible adventures, tall tales and animal anecdotes from my lifetime travelling the world, having been to a hundred countries in every conceivable environment. Over the next few years with the help of all the fine folk at Orion, I look forward to sharing these stories with a world of (hopefully) willing readers."
