About this book

Animal Records is the definitive guide to the most exceptional creatures on Earth, from the strongest and shortest to the longest and laziest. Packed with thousands of amazing facts and all the latest discoveries, it features world record holders from each of the main animal groups including mammals, birds, reptiles, amphibians, fishes and invertebrates.

Find out how the okapi can lick and clean its own eyes. Discover the tiny cat flea that jumps with an acceleration equivalent to over 20 times that needed to launch a space rocket. Marvel at the cross-breasted turtle, from Central America, which locals believe can eat its way out of a crocodile. With stunning new photographs and all the latest facts, Animal Records is a celebration of creatures both great and small that will appeal to all the family.
