OVERVIEW
The strangest and scariest monsters aren't always the biggest. Bugs profiles nature's tiniest terrors, drawn from regions and habitats as diverse as the rainforests of South America, the deep oceans and urban homes and gardens. From venomous spiders and scorpions to bloodthirsty leeches and hungry piranhas, the natural world's smallest creatures are also among the most bizarre and wonderful.

The book is divided into eight sections covering lizards, snakes, amphibians, spiders, sea creatures, crustaceans and molluscs, bugs and beetles, and other insects. The huge range of animals covered provides a sense of the incredible diversity of living creatures. Each creature is illustrated with beautifully detailed, full-color artworks. For easy reference, each entry includes a table of key information such as scientific name, features, habitats, distribution, diet and breeding. Full of facts and interesting snippets, the book is a valuable reference source as well as a fascinating read, revealing the spectacular world of some of nature's smallest – and most incredible – animals.
