About this book

A beautiful and fascinating portrait of the world's most extreme wildlife, from the sexiest beast to the smelliest plant.

The world's most devious plant, the largest flock of birds, the biggest drug user, the most dangerous love-life. Here is a mind-blowing guide to the weirdest and most remarkable wildlife on our planet. Lavishly illustrated, this is a beautiful book to own as well as an unputdownable read.

The entries are quirky yet informative, focusing on single species with bizarre lifestyles and impressive adaptations. The main book consists of over 150 entries, organised into four sections: Extreme Growth, Extreme Abilities, Extreme Movement and Extreme Families.

Intelligently written, it is aimed at all those with an interest in wildlife.
