Deadly!: The Truth About the Most Dangerous Creatures on Earth (Hardcover)

Usually Ships in 1-5 days


Lions and scorpions and lethal little jellyfish, oh my! Kids will sink their teeth into this fascinating look at nature’s fiercest creatures.

Sometimes nature can be nasty: snakes that spit poison, insects with exploding bottoms, and tigers that have you for dinner. Throughout the animal kingdom, creatures are equipped with lethal weapons, from finger-length fangs to toxic tentacles, and have ingenious ways of killing one another — poisoning, dive-bombing, strangling, and even electrocuting! Discover the murderous methods of attack and defense that make animals armed, dangerous, and deadly.

About the Author

Nicola Davies is a zoologist and writer whose many acclaimed books for children include Surprising Sharks, Gaia Warriors, and five companion titles to Deadly! "Living with animals that are cute and harmless is easy," she says, "but we need to share our world with the creatures that can bite and sting, too." Nicola Davies lives in Wales.

Neal Layton has illustrated more than forty books for children, including the other fivebooks in this series. About illustrating Deadly!, he says, "It was really good fun drawing allthese dangerous animals, and now I’ll know what to do if I ever meet a shark who puts itsfin down and hunches its back at me." He lives in Portsmouth, England.
