Overview

Did you know that laughing is the hyena's way of communicating with its family? Or that the bats that inhabit Asia and Africa help rain forests to grow by spreading tree seeds? CREEPY CREATURES explores some of the reasons behind what animals do and how they look.

In this fascinating book, readers will learn that no animal exists simply to frighten or repulse us, but rather to feed, house, and defend itself. Kristin Kest's detailed illustrations help us to see that every creature's unique attributes help it to survive. CREEPY CREATURES is full of facts and humor about 20 creatures including the shark, tarantula, piranha, vulture, komodo dragon, and Tasmanian devil.

A closer look at some animals that seem scary or creepy reveals that they may not be so odd or frightening after all.
