Description

Survival in the natural world is all about 'eat or be eaten'. It makes sense that animals have developed some pretty extreme adaptations to help them on both sides of the equation. From cooperative hunting and deadly poisons to sophisticated camouflage and the art of playing dead, this book is crammed with information about the animal kingdom's cleverest attack and defence mechanisms. From the fearsome efficiency of the great white shark to the tiny power of the army ant, and so much more, young readers will be amazed at exactly what the natural world can dish up.show more
