With humour and flair, Michael Hearst introduces the reader to a wealth of extraordinary life forms in this nonfiction book. Which animal can be found at the top of Mt Everest, 10,000 feet under the sea, and in your back garden? Which animal poops cubes? Which animal can disguise itself as a giant crab? These fascinating facts and hundreds more await intrepid readers, amateur zoologists and anyone who has ever laughed at a funny-looking animal.
