From the tiny amoeba to the mighty blue whale, this beautifully illustrated book marvels at the sheer size of some of the world's most fascinating creatures. Did you know that a sword-billed hummingbird has a beak longer than its body? A giant anteater's tongue can extend two feet into a termite mound in pursuit of food? Or that a lion's
mane sea jelly can grow tentacles as long as three buses? See how the world's animals measure up and compare them all at once using the large pull-out chart at the back of the book. With 26 habitats to explore, featuring more than 250 animals.
