Summary
Delve into the forests, burrow under the ground, and dive into the deep to discover nature's most peculiar creatures and learn about their behavior, diet, and habitat, as well as folk beliefs about each animal. Hidden away in Earth's forests, caves, and oceans, these creatures might look or behave in peculiar ways but, as you will soon find out, every oddity serves a purpose: the long, skeletal finger of an aye-aye, used by this lemur to tap on trees to locate hollow tunnels where delicious insects hide, the barrel-shaped eyes of a Pacific barreleye fish that turn upward to watch for prey above through its transparent head, the big, bulbous nose of a proboscis monkey designed to attract mates, the armor-like scales of a pangolin that are so tough that even lions and tigers can't bite through them. Come face-to-face with the most curious creatures from across the globe, and decide for yourself who's the weirdest of them all.--Amazon
