Photos by Joe & Mary Ann McDonald

The natural world can be deadly, with animals as diverse as elephants and orcas or ticks and taipans having the potential to make any encounter a lethal one. This book explores the world’s most deadly creatures, covering every major animal group both on the land and in the sea, and the unique adaptations these animals have that make these creatures dangerous to man.
