Many visitors to Australia feel slightly nervous at the thought of a continent teeming with incredibly "dangerous" and "ferocious" animals. Our fascination with folklore and terrifying tales of native killers has created fear in the minds of visitors and locals alike. Australia is one of the world's twelve nations scientifically recognised as "megadiverse", so it is full of fascinating animals. All animals have to face being eaten, and so have evolved different defences. This practical field guide puts public perception into perspective in order to avoid misunderstanding and enable us to enjoy our fascinating native wildlife while leaving it undisturbed. High-quality photographs and information on appearance, behaviour and distribution make this book perfect for anyone who has ever wondered about the truth of Australia's "deadly and dangerous."
