Dangerous animals get a bad rap,
but this beautifully illustrated encyclopaedia helps us appreciate the incredible features of some of our more hair-raising animal species.

 

 

With more than sixty of the most deadly and dangerous animals from across the world to explore, every page of this beautifully illustrated volume is more eye-opening than the last. You will learn interesting facts about these fascinating species such as how they have adapted to survive and whether we should be threatened by these animals or appreciate them for their incredible features. Children and adults alike will pore over the breathtaking scientific illustrations of unusual animals from the Cone Shell to the Wolverine and the Irukandji Jellyfish to the Slow Loris, debating their relative dangerous features, learning about science and nature along the way.

 

 

 

Sami Bayly is a natural history illustrator based in Newcastle, who loves all things weird and wonderful. She finds the beauty and importance in all animals regardless of their appearance, and hopes to share her appreciation with others.
