Book Description:
Australia has many unique and fascinating creatures, and this book covers them all. Inside you’ll find all the animals that have built Australia’s reputation as one of the wildest places on earth to visit, such as crocodiles, sharks, snakes, spiders and jellyfish. You’ll also find some creatures you wouldn’t expect, such as bees, koalas and emus. Australia’s Dangerous Creatures For Dummies provides an intimate portrait of each creature, showing readers in detail how to identify them and avoid them in the wild. Also provided are 55 photos, including 16 in full colour, and 70 diagrams, to aid readers with identification, and first aid tips and instructions on what to do in an emergency. Throughout the book, the authors also reinforce the need to respect Australian wildlife, and highlight that humans are the most dangerous creatures of all.
