Description

"Extreme Bugs" takes a magnifying glass to the tiny world of insects, revealing the outrageously icky, ingenious, colorful, adaptable, hungry, stinky, and just plain weird bugs that you would never want to find in your bed! This book includes a section on insect world record holders in categories like fastest flyer, longest body, and deadliest to humans, as well as close ups on unique bug body parts like stingers, exoskeletons, and antennae, and chapters on unbelievable defense mechanisms, mating habits, communication methods, and camouflage abilities. The biggest, strangest, and most remarkable extreme wonders on the planet are finally exposed and explained! "Extreme Wonders" is a new dynamic full-colour series covering the amazing creatures, technology, and events that surpass the ordinary. Each title explores the most thrilling and awesome occurrences of a specific topic, with exciting tales of the natural world, scientific discovery, and beyond.
