Wild Animals (Ripley's Twists) by

Ripley's Twists bring a fun, engaging and uniquely Ripley's approach to a whole range of topics, from the human body to space. Each title blends stunning full-colour photographs and illustrations with clear explanations and extraordinary facts that are guaranteed to inform and to entertain. In Wild Animals you will find: key information - everything from how much an elephant eats per day to how flies digest their food; intriguing bite-size facts - a swarm of desert locusts devours 32 million kilograms of food every 24 hours; real-life stories - like the Malaysian reticulated python who swallowed an entire sheep and then, too full to move, had to be hauled off the road by firemen; 'Big word alert' glossaries - clear and straightforward explanations of difficult words such as 'omnivore'; stunning photographs and detailed diagrams; and, a full-colour pull-out poster.
