Beware: it's a poisonous world—and this is the ultimate guide to surviving nature at her most toxic! Journeying from the plains of the outback to the jungles of Madagascar, Dr. Mark Siddall, curator of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History, delves into earth's deadliest and most sinister creatures. Seventy-five wittily written, engaging, and illustrated entries cover things that sting, that bite, and that you shouldn't touch or eat. Siddall provides fascinating insight into these species and their sometimes lethal, occasionally beneficial poisons.
