Description

These fascinating creatures live everywhere, from the deepest oceans to the highest mountains, from the hot desert to the icy tundra...and they're the world's deadliest killers. Thanks to the fantastic visual display that unfolds on these pages, children can get up-close and personal with the fiercest animals on Earth and find out just why they're so lethal. And what amazing images! There are four three-page gatefolds that open wide, three even bigger four-page gatefolds, and a poster on the reverse of the jacket. The wide variety of predators includes reptiles, insects, mammals, and birds, and they range from massive sperm whales, hippos, and buffalo to the tiny fleas and mosquitoes that actually cause the most destruction of all. Intrigued youngsters will find out why animals kill other animals, what they do to locate their prey, and how they slay--including claws, tusks, powerful jaws and teeth, and venom. (Or, in the case of the mantis shrimp, by punching its victim to death!) And kids will especially enjoy looking at such details as a polar bear's dangerous paw and the glow-in-the-dark eyes of a leopard readying for a nighttime attack. Throughout, a "life-size stamp" points out all pictures that capture a creature's true size.
