Animal Planet: The Most Extreme Animalsby Discovery Channel, Ian McGee (Foreword by), Kevin Mohs (Foreword by), Sherry Gerstein (Editor)
Animal Planet The Most Extreme Animals gets you up close and personal with the wildest animals in the world. Based on the popular Animal Planet television series, this colorful book counts down the top ten animals in some crazy categories, from the most extreme fighters, biters, and stinkers to the most extreme eaters, survivors, and thinkers. In these pages you will discover many amazing creatures, such as: Beautiful Siamese fighting fish, which will battle each other to the death over territory! Leafy sea dragons, which grow amazing seaweed-like projections to blend into their surroundings! The duck-billed platypus, which has a bill like a duck, a tail like a beaver, and poisonous spurs on its back legs! Bombardier beetles, which fend off predators by shooting boiling hot chemicals out of their backsides! Sloths, which hang out for so long in the trees that forests of algae grow in their fur!
