How Not to Get Eaten


For many animals, life is a constant battle to stay off a predator’s menu. This book explores lots of cunning ways they avoid being eaten. From camouflage and colour-changing, natural armour, playing dead, great escapes, detachable body parts, and impressive ways of fighting back, the range of survival tactics in the natural world is quite astonishing (and sometimes pretty disgusting). ‘How Not To Get Eaten’ is a brilliant introduction to the ingenious anti-predator strategies in the natural world. Discover how meerkats post sentries to guard their homes and possums play dead, to how mimic octopuses change their shape and bombardier beetles unleash a chemical weapon attack.
