Overview

Deadliest Spiders by Kris Hirschmann

Teeth, claws, power, speed, venom, and an acute sense of hearing or sight-these are some of the characteristics that the world's deadliest predators rely on for their survival. Each volume in the Deadliest Predators series focuses on one group of animals (sharks, snakes, spiders, eta) and then profiles six creatures within that group. How they hunt, what they eat, where they live, and the essential role they play in maintaining nature's balance are all vividly and accurately detailed. Sidebars; large, full-color photographs; and a glossary add depth and interest to each book in the series.
