The Screaming Hairy Armadillo and 76 Other Animals with Weird, Wild Names

Author(s): Matthew Murrie; Steve Murrie

Wild Animals

Kids love science, kids love animals, and kids love everything - everything - weird. Introducing The Screaming Hairy Armadillo and 76 Other Animals with Wild, Wacky Names, a science-based illustrated celebration of creatures notable for their bizarre, baffling, and just-plain-funny names.

Meet the Waxy Monkey Tree Frog, who lives high in the forests of South America - the 'waxy' refers to its skin secretions and the 'monkey' comes from its long, simian fingers, perfect for climbing. The White-Bellied Go-Away Bird - guess what its cry sounds like? Plus the Fried Egg Jellyfish, the Sparklemuffin Peacock Spider, the Bone-Eating Snot Flower Worm, and many more. While the names of these species are undeniably curious, the heart of the book is their just-as-curious habits, appearance, abilities - and the stories of how they acquired their unusual monikers.

There are over 70 creatures in all, brought to life with full-colour illustrations and photographs and detailed, engagingly written text.
