Extreme Animals

by Nicola Davies Illustrated by Neal Layton

The creators of Poop are back with an entertaining look at the most incredible survivors on Earth.

Are you ready for the competition? From the persevering emperor penguins of the South Pole to the brave bacteria inside bubbling volcanoes, from the hardy reptiles of the driest deserts to the squash-proof creatures of the deepest seabeds, animals have adapted to survive in conditions that would kill a human faster than you can say "coffin." Discover how they do it in this amazing natural history book from a celebrated team, and find out who wins the title of the toughest animal of them all!
