The world is full of animals with strange shapes, dangerous defences, and bizarre habits. The Ugh! Yuck! and Whoa! series highlights the most extreme among them: the grossest, the deadliest, and the ugliest! Learning about lesser-known creatures they may never have seen before helps children to better understand ecosystems and the natural world.

Don't Bite Me! is all about animals with crazy teeth and dangerous bites.
