The frog with self-cleaning feet : ... and other extraordinary tales from the animal world by Michael Bright( Book )

8 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Did you know that an ostrich egg can make an omelet for ten people? Or that there is a squid with eyes the size of dinner plates? How about that crocodiles have the world's most powerful bite, yet their mouths can be held shut by a man's bare hands? Or that box jellyfish are the most venomous creatures in the world, and they're almost impossible to see? Wild animals do the most extraordinary, and sometimes frightening, things. Some are exceptionally bright, using tools and even treating themselves with medicinal plants. Others are devious: they cheat, steal, run protection rackets, and use chemical warfare to get what they want. Then there are the slackers, like the sloth, which only moves up to 125 feet a day, and the over-achievers, like the Arctic tern, which migrates over 44,000 miles every year! If you've ever wanted to know why a zebra has stripes, or which animal is the most dangerous, has the loudest voice, boasts the longest tongue, or is the most mysterious, The Frog With the Self-Cleaning Feet is here to reveal the curiosities of nature. Packed full of entertaining surprises and unusual information, you may not believe your tiny, human-sized eyes
