Synopsis

The Illustrated Wildlife Encyclopedia Bugs & Minibeasts by Barbara Taylor, Dr Jen Green, John Farndon

Beetles, Bugs. Butterflies. Moths. Insects. Spiders. This is an engaging and accessible reference guide to every aspect of these creatures' lives and how they behave. It features more than 800 photographs and illustrations that capture the exciting world of these fabulous species. Stunning picture sequences give an insect's eye view of survival in the wild. It includes fascinating facts and information, supporting school studies on life processes in the natural world. This amazing book examines the intriguing aspects of all kinds of bugs and minibeasts. Did you know that the Wall Brown butterfly smells like chocolate? Or that, during its lifetime, a worker honeybee only collects enough nectar to make about a quarter of a jar of honey? Close-up photographs unveil the secrets of this miniature world - all-seeing compound eyes, super-sensitive antennae, clusters of eggs, powerful stings, a spider spinning its web, and the incredible sight of a perfectly formed insect emerging from its pupal case.
