Animal Planet Weird and Wonderful: Show-offs by Kingfisher


Animal Planet Weird and Wonderful: Show-offs by Kingfisher

Nature is full of extraordinary examples of animals going over the top in the name of evolution. Some use their showy displays to warn off predators, while others use them to attract mates, and some even use them to confuse and confound. This book takes a look at the most fascinating - and the most extreme - examples of in-your-face display. From the bioluminescence of the deep-sea anglerfish to the mating call of the bullfrog, the extraordinary plumage of the bird of paradise, and so much more, this is the ultimate guide to nature's record-breaking show-offs!
