Extreme Animals is a must-have for all wildlife enthusiasts and it showcases the extremes of nature, from the biggest and smallest mammals and reptiles to the highest flying birds and insects, from the deepest swimming creatures to those that live in hottest and coldest places, to those that form the biggest gatherings, and so on.
