About this book

Animal Record Breakers 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 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 photographs throughout, Animal Record Breakers is a celebration of creatures both great and small that will appeal to all the family.

Previously called Animal Records, this new paperback edition has been revised, retitled and updated with new records and all the latest facts from the animal kingdom. The foreword to the book is by award-winning writer and presenter Mark Carwardine.
