About this book

Meet the animal kingdom's most competent killers! Stabbing and strangling, poisoning and drowning, electrocuting, exploding, dive-bombing and even death by glueing! Throughout the animal kingdom, creatures great and small have evolved to become masters of murder: from dive-bombing peregrine falcons to exploding carpenter ants, electric eels to spitting cobras.

The ingenious and often hilarious means of survival that both predators and prey employ are entertainingly explored in this celebration of all things deadly. With fantastically funny illustrations by Neal Layton and clear, informative explanations and advice on how we can all peaceably share our world, this book cannot fail to enlighten and engross.
