Overview

Why do spiders so often end up in the bathtub? How does the spider wasp beat the trapdoor spider? Which insect has killed more people than any other animal? Where do army ants build their nests?

Amazing Spiders and Bugs is a fact-packed introduction to 44 fascinating animals. From the nut weevil that lays its eggs inside hazelnuts to the bombardier beetle whose spray can kill frogs, this book explores all kinds of animals from around the world.

Inside you’ll learn that a locust can eat its own weight in plants every day, that a swarm of horseflies can kill a horse, that killer bees were first bred as recently as the 1950s, and that the American cockroach can run 50 times its body length every second. And did you know that many orb-weaver spiders build a new web every day, after eating the old one?
