About this book

Deadly Animals explores the ultimate question:which animal wins the title of the most deadly of all time? It is not such an easy question as you might think. Does it belong to the fast and powerful big cats; or is it one of the ancient dinosaurs like Tyrannosaurus rex or even a large marine predator, like the Great White Shark or the Killer Whale, as recent movies and various legends seem to suggest? Maybe. Yet, sometimes small is powerful, especially if armed with stingers or fangs.

Some of the tiniest creatures of all can claim the largest number of victims, like the Anopheles Mosquito, which can spread the deadly disease malaria. So, it is really difficult to judge, isn't it? To help you make up your own mind, Deadly Animals presents the most dangerous creatures on Earth, each accompanied by a unique deadly score. Could the toxic slime that oozes from the skin of the Poison Dart Frog put it into the top ten? Or will it be the jaw power and killer instinct of the 'King of the Jungle' – the African lion? Turn the pages (carefully!) to meet the most lethal animals from ancient times to the modern day.
