Have you ever wondered...

What is the most dangerous snake in Australia?

Which spider takes the prize for biting more people annually than any other creature?

How many deaths from shark attacks have been recorded since 1876?

What is the most dangerous creature found in Australian waters?

The answers to these questions and many more can be found in Bruce Thomson's AUSTRALIA'S MOST DEADLY AND DANGEROUS BEASTS.

While Australia is well known as the home of some of the world's most deadly animals, almost all our life-threatening creatures would prefer to retreat rather than attack. However, visitors and locals alike continue to be fascinated by what lurks in the Australian bush and waters.

Offering a concise and up-to-date guide to all our most harmful species, insects, birds and marine creatures that have been known to inflict harm, even death, on the unsuspecting. As well as dispelling some the myths, the book describes:

each creature's preferred habitat,

distribution throughout Australia,

identification tips,

how to avoid unpleasant encounters,

likely symptoms in the event of contact

basic first-aid instructions

Lavishly illustrated throughout, this book is required reading for anyone planning an Australian bushwalking expedition, outback adventure or marine holiday.
