Kids love the Cutest Animals on the Planet, so for daring readers, the animal kingdom’s fiercest, fastest, and most dangerous creatures are sure to thrill!

But don’t be fooled. Even tiny animals like cute little jewel-toned frogs or massive, sleepy-looking, plant-eating hippos can pack a deadly punch. Earth’s oceans, forests, grasslands, deserts, and even cities are home to a wide variety of amazing animals with crazy-cool slaying skills that help them hunt for food and defend themselves. In this lively and browsable book, readers find out where these impressive creatures live, what makes them tick, how they beat the odds in harsh habitats, and just what makes them so deadly.

Meet the Nile crocodile and learn about its astonishing bite force. Discover the elephant seal’s deafening roar. Explore how the jaguar’s speed and night vision help it ambush prey. Encounter enormous harpy eagles, bone-crushing snakes, venomous spiders, and more. Jaw-dropping photos and surprising facts bring readers up close and personal to the world’s most fearsome—and fascinating!—animals.

Like Cutest Animals on the Planet, the previous book in this new series, this often humorous, snackable content provides great entry points for readers of all levels and lots of fascinating facts to share with friends and family.
