Synopsis

Some animals have developed astounding plumage, skin and fur which perfectly meets their needs. From the pangolin, which is covered in 'plates of armour' to protect it from predators, to the leafy appearance of the weedy sea dragon, that allows it hide amongst the seaweed, the creatures featured in this book have developed appearances that are both unique and out-of-this-world. Find out more about these marvels of nature and learn how evolution has shaped each animal's appearance - whether it is trying to blend in with its surroundings, pretend to be a different species or draw attention to how deadly it is. Vivid, arresting photography paired with captivating animal encounters make this book a thrilling introduction to some of the basics of evolutionary theory.
