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. This gorgeous hardcover book is illustrated in exquisite detail by exciting new Australian talent, Sami Bayly. A brilliant companion to The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Ugly Animals.
