Did you know that a tiny golf ball-sized creature called the blue-ringed octopus contains enough venom to kill 26 adult humans? Or that the deadliest creature in the world is smaller than a pencil eraser? In this level 3 book, kids will be fascinated by more than 12 species that you better hope you'll never come across, and some you just can't avoid. Sharks, snakes, jellyfish and more - these creatures are among the most dangerous - and interesting - on the planet.
