Deadly! The Truth About the Most Dangerous Creatures on Earth by Nicola Davies

Meet the animal kingdom's most competent killers in this fascinating natural history book.Stabbing and strangling, poisoning and drowning, electrocuting, exploding, dive-bombing and even death by glueing! Throughout the animal kingdom, creatures great and small have evolved to become masters of murder: from dive-bombing peregrine falcons to exploding carpenter ants, from electric eels to spitting cobras. The ingenious and often hilarious means of survival that both predators and prey employ are entertainingly explored in this celebration of all things deadly. With fantastically funny illustrations by Neal Layton and highly original explanations and advice on how we can all peaceably share our world, this book cannot fail to enlighten and engross. This is one of six books in the Animal Science series - the best biology series ever!

Reviews

Manages to bring in plenty of humour, and makes an engaging read for all ages. The hilarious cartoons by Neal Layton are wonderful and hugely entertaining. The book is well written with plenty of valuable information - and advice about sharing our world with these marvellous creatures. A refreshing and original approach. * Parents in Touch * As an animal enthusiast myself, I really enjoyed reading this book and learnt lots along the way. I especially like the amusing pictures that bring the words to life. * The List *
