Illustrated with more than 200 outstanding photographs, Dangerous Animals presents an in- depth look at the natural world’s most deadly creatures, from poisonous spiders and sea snakes to aggressive lions and man-eating sharks. The selection spans a broad spectrum of wildlife, from large carnivores such as the grizzly bear and great white shark to smaller but equally deadly predators such as the black widow spider and puff adder.
Each world habitat is covered, with examples carefully drawn from every region of the planet – from the majestic lion of the African plains and the polar bear of the arctic wastes, to the Komodo dragon of Southeast Asia, whose saliva carries poisonous bacteria that can kill a person in hours.
Featuring around 80 species, each photographic entry is supported with a fascinating caption, explaining how the animal manages to be so deadly. Beautifully presented, this accessible book is a wonderful introduction to some of the planet’s fiercest – or just most poisonous – creatures.
