Spiders by Clare Hibbert


Spiders by Clare Hibbert

Spiders come in all kinds of shapes, sizes and colours...but why? Some camouflage themselves from predators or prey by disguising themselves ad flowers and even bird poo! Other spiders can walk on water and some can even dive below the surface. From spitting spiders and giant goliath bird-eating spiders to spiders that can run as fast as a person, plus all the amazing variety of webs they spin, discover some of the world's strangest arachnids and learn all about why they are so weird! Really Weird Animals, six books that take a close up look at some of the oddest animals on Earth. For children aged 7+.
