From the authors of 'A Gap in Nature', a breathtaking visual adventure showcasing ninety of the world's most astounding creatures.

Sumptuous birds of paradise, amazing soft-shell turtles, frogs that look like tomatoes, and terrifying fish (including the deep-water angler fish from Finding Nemo) are just some of the extraordinary creatures that can be found in Tim Flannery and Peter Schouten's new book, 'Astonishing Animals'.

Superbly illustrated in lifelike full-color paintings, 'Astonishing Animals' details ninety of the world's most amazing animals from around the world. In this book you will find the Hairy Seadevil, the spectacular Sulawesi Naked Bat, and in the depths of the limestone caves in Slovenia, the Olm, a pink, four-legged, sightless salamander that lives for a hundred years. In fascinating vignettes, Flannery offers the true evolutionary tale of how each of these bizarre creatures came to look the way they do. Alongside each historical account is a stunning hand-painted color reproduction (life-size in the original painting) by Schouten. Filled with purple-faced apes, jagged-toothed dolphins, and antlered lizards, 'Astonishing Animals' is a remarkable collection of the world's most incredible creatures and the stories behind their remarkable survival into a modern age.
