About this book

Insects that look like leaves, snakes that play dead, fish that fly, and toads with poisonous skin - these animals are among the many creatures that defend themselves in fascinating ways. Almost every animal is hunted as food by some other kind of animal and has developed ways to defend itself against predators. "Animal Defenses" presents the wide variety of physical and behavioral adaptations used by animals in their struggle to survive and shows how scientists continue to make new discoveries about the age-old maneuvering between predator and prey.
