'This book is packed with glorious photos, and fascinating facts about some of the world's least known and most endangered species.' Kate Humble(journalist & TV presenter) 'This is far more than a list of 100 endangered species - it provides an overview to our world's vanishing wild places and their beleaguered inhabitants. There is something here for everyone - history, animal behaviour, conservation. Anyone looking for their next (travel) adventure need search no further. Nick Garbutt's latest book is enough to inspire the safari of a lifetime.' Jonathan and Angie Scott(wildlife photographers & authors) 'This excellent guide to the world's most threatened creatures - a few of which I have seen with my own eyes, the rest I am never likely to - is essential reading for anyone who really cares about what is happening to nature.' John Craven OBE 'A terrific book - full of vivid descriptions of some of the most remarkable creatures on the planet, it's also a timely reminder of what we stand to lose. Everyone who cares about wildlife should read it.' Mark Carwardine(zoologist, writer & wildlife photographer) 'This is an important book in the crusade to save the planet's biodiversity, for it draws attention to some of the rarest gems of the animal kingdom.' Lee Durrell, Durrell Wildlife Conservation Trust 'A colourful mix of interesting information about the world's most fascinating animals, including strong conservation messages, finished off with practical, up-to-date information about the best places to see them.' Rosamund Kidman Cox (editor of BBC Wildlife magazine for over 20 years) 'What makes 100 Bizarre Animals stand out is the lively, informative text by Mike Unwin.' 'Giant anteaters, cartwheeling spiders and, naturally, the platypus, are all subject to Unwin's keen eye, engaging turn of phrase and well-researched, up-to-date accounts of their behavioural and evolutionary biology.' 'Even if many of these animal oddities are already familiar to regular readers of BBC Wildlife they are well worth another look through Mike Unwin's eyes.' (Stuart Blackman, BBC Wildlife) With beautiful photograhy and descriptions of each animal, the habitats in which they live, their characteristics and behaviour and conservation efforts to save them, this book is both fascinating and disturbing.'
