Deadly and Dangerous Animals

by Ben Rothery is a fascinating introduction to the deadliest predators of the animal kingdom! The book categorizes the animals by different methods of catching prey, whether it’s by using powerful jaws and claws, speed, or mimicry. Some of these animals are well-known for their hunting skills, like the saltwater crocodile with its menacing teeth, or the grizzly bear, which can run over 30 miles an hour. Others, however, are more surprising, like the dragonfly. Using its sharp sight and double pairs of wings, the dragonfly catches 95 percent of its intended prey of bees and moths. This book is great for animal enthusiasts of all ages!  (NonFiction)
