This paperback edition of Natural History Museum Animal Records has been fully revised and updated with new
records and all the latest facts from the animal kingdom. It is a fascinating guide to the most exceptional creatures
on Earth, from the strongest and shortest to the longest and laziest. Packed with thousands of amazing facts and all the latest
discoveries, it features world record holders from each of the main animal groups including mammals, birds,
reptiles, amphibians, fishes and invertebrates. Entries include: the biggest squid ever captured with an eye as big as a beachball; the world’s smallest snake, averaging just 10 cm (4 in) and as thin as a spaghetti noodle; and a tropical mammal with a taste for alcoholic nectar which has been declared the hardest-drinking animal in the world.
