The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Dangerous Animals is a beautifully illustrated encyclopedia which introduces middle to upper primary school aged children to the world of dangerous animals. Perfect for school projects, junior zoologists and animal lovers.
Find out about the diet, danger rating and habitats of these strange and dangerous creatures from jellyfish, frogs and snakes to wolverines, insects and even birds!
All the essential facts for projects are found here e.g. both the common and scientific names (including a handy pronunciation guide) and conservation status. There are also gross fun facts like ‘Hippos wag their tails wildly in order to spray their droppings over a large area.’
With entries covering a wide variety of animals, this book shows that even the non-cuddly creatures have their place in the world’s ecosystems.
The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Dangerous Animals was awarded an honour book in the Children's Book Council of Australia's Eve Pownall award. For more great books and award winners check out the Children's Book Council of Australia website.
