The Natural History Museum Book of Predators: How Predators Find, Catch and Consume Their Prey

Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the water...In an exciting new exhibition, the Natural History Museum illustrates the many fascinating and ingenious ways that predators such as sharks, grizzly bears, crocodiles, pythons and wolves have evolved over centuries and perfected their skill in hunting and killing their prey. It also shows how prey have adapted in order to evade their predators, using camouflage, poison and a range of other tactics. From the polar bear's incredible sense of smell to the targeted jets of water produced by the archer fish, and from the chameleon's 360 degree vision and sticky projectile tongue to the Bolas spider that secretes a moth pheromone to attract his prey, then produces a long thread with a drop of glue at one end to catch it, each predator has adapted to their unique environment and found the best way of ensuring their own food supply. The Natural History Museum Book of Predators will feature new and original photography from the museum, including the stunning animated exhibits like the Great White shark and the Funnel Web spider, specially created for this exhibition. experts, and the best and most up to date pictures from the Museum and other sources, this is the finest book on the most fascinating, and exciting creatures in the world.
