Description / Animal Record Breakers

Packed with astonishing facts and jaw-dropping images Animal Record Breakers is a guide to the most exceptional creatures on Earth. From the strongest and shortest to the longest and laziest, it features world record holders from each of the main animal groups.

See the flea that accelerates as fast as a space rocket and discover the Burmese python that swallowed an alligator then exploded. Find all this and more in this celebration of creatures both great and small.

Naturalist, author and TV presenter Chris Packham is a fan, he says: 'Big can be brilliant, but minuscule can be miraculous! Fast is fun, but old can be outrageous and whilst rarest is sad, common gives us hope. We all need that, and we all love a compendium of fascinating facts. So dive in! (Deep!).'
