About this book

Enter a world of winged wonders, enormous earwigs and super-sized scorpions with Big Bugs Life-size. From the heaviest cockroach to the spider with the longest legs, Natural History Museum insect expert George Beccaloni gives all the essential facts about the world’s 35 biggest minibeasts – where they live and what they eat.

These giant creepy crawlies are some of the most magnificent creatures on the planet and often have interesting stories associated with them. How do war-like termite soldiers defend a nest when they are completely blind? What does the goliath bird-eating spider actually feed on? Stunningly illustrated throughout, including a special fold-out spread of the world’s longest insect, Big Bugs Life-size shows just how huge these creatures really are.
