Come face-to-face with 150 of the world's scariest killer creatures, from the tiger and great white shark to tarantulas, snakes, eagles, and even ants!

Nature's Deadliest Creatures Visual Encyclopedia profiles every kind of creature - mammals, reptiles, birds, fish, insects, arachnids, and more - with chapters arranged according to how they kill, including jaws and claws, venom, stings, traps, cunning, and mass invasion. From powerful predators like killer whales, crocodiles, and bears, to stealthy vampire bats and spiders, read about how each astounding animal tracks, tackles, and tears apart their prey.

Every page has a stunning image of the animal in action, with data files giving a visual guide to the animal's size, distribution, diet, and habitat, as well as rating its scare factor!

Discover key facts about how the animal lives (is it solitary or a pack animal?), intriguing anatomy (the platypus is famously one of the few venomous mammals, but did you know that the venom comes from the hind leg on the males only?), and of course, their method of attack (such as chasing prey to exhaustion, or launching an ambush).

Featuring a host of nature's most famous fearsome creatures, this book is an essential guide to the wildest, most dangerous beasts in the animal kingdom.
