From snakes to birds, and from crocodiles to sharks, this fact-filled encyclopedia offers an insight into the fascinating world of nature and some of its most exciting and mysterious hunters. The book is divided into four sections and covers some of the most varied and powerful predators, both on land and in the ocean. Find out how some vultures ingeniously use tools in their quest for food, how snakes learn to defend themselves when threatened and discover the differences between alligators and crocodiles. With specially commissioned photography and informative text, this book aims to answer many questions on how predators live, including food and feeding, defence, life cycles, habitats and play. Myth boxes explore legends and stories from many cultures and ages, while focus spreads and "Did You Know?" features take a closer look and offer quirky facts to amaze and amuse.Über den Autor:
