about this item

Steve Backshall needs no introduction following his performances on TV series such as Deadly 60 and Lost Land of . . . Poison is an everyday part of the animal world, and an essential tool for hunting and defense. A wide variety of insects, reptiles, and amphibians use toxins to subdue their prey or to stop becoming prey to another predator. Even some mammals and birds resort to poison as a means of securing a meal or deterring attack!

From species such as the King Cobra, Lionfish, Fat-tail Scorpion, and Poison Dart-frog to the diminutive but lethal Black Widow Spider, the author takes a fascinating look at the different types of natural venoms. On a tour of the world's continents, he looks at over 60 of the most venomous creatures, describing their main characteristics and explaining how they administer their venom and what its effects are. Stunning color photographs and exciting accounts of Steve's own encounters with some of these animals bring the world of natural venom alive.
