How Not to Get Eaten

More than 75 Incredible Animal Defenses



An in-depth look at the many clever, creative, and crazy ways that animals protect themselves from predators

For many animals, life is a constant battle to stay off a predator's menu. This book explores lots of cunning ways they avoid being eaten. From camouflage and colour-changing, natural armour, playing dead, great escapes, detachable body parts, and impressive ways of fighting back, the range of survival tactics in the natural world is quite astonishing (and sometimes pretty disgusting).

How Not To Get Eaten is a brilliant introduction to the ingenious anti-predator strategies in the natural world. Meet caterpillars who pretend to be scary snakes, geckos who lose their skin to stay alive, trees that team up with ants to fight off elephants, and more!

Perfect for children aged 7-9, the book is filled with intriguing illustrations and spectacular photographs of the amazing, obscure, and incredibly strange. You'll never look at nature the same way again!
