A perfect marriage: bugs, kids, and Fandex. Meet South America's Hercules Beetle, as big as a dollar bill and the strongest creature on earth, able to lift 850 times its body weight. (That's like a 100-pound person lifting four school buses!) The Black Widow Spider, whose females, contrary to reputation, rarely eat their mates. And the wonderfully bizarre Walking Stick, sometimes called "Frankenstick" for its ability to reattach its own severed head. Plus Treehoppers and Leafhoppers, centipedes and millipedes, stealthy Assassin Bugs, and twelve thousand varieties of ant.

Bringing the world's most fascinating creepy-crawlies―insects, spiders, scorpions, and other Arthropoda―to your fingertips, Bugs combines fascinating information about 48 creatures with die-cut, full-color photographs that reveal their subjects' shimmery wings, iridescent shells, vivid hues, and bold shapes in astonishing detail. Every card includes a detailed description, habitat and scientific name, lore, field notes on lifecycle, identifiers, and size, as well as sidebars covering topics such as the fly's ability to walk upside-down and how bees make honey.

From the Back Cover:

Bugs that walk on water. Bugs that consume billions of tons of dung a day. Bugs stealthy enough to steal prey from a spider web. Bugs that can grow to 2,700 times their original weight in just two weeks. Bugs that can reattach their own limbs―even a severed head.

Bringing the weird world of Bugs to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide that marries vivid photographs of these beautiful and complex creatures with fascinating facts, stats, and lore about 47 insects, spiders, and other arthropods. (Arthropod: an invertebrate animal with a segmented body and jointed limbs―and the most diverse and plentiful group of animals ever to walk the earth.)

About the Author:
