Don’t Mess With Me : The Weird Lives of Venomous Sea Creatures
Don’t Mess With Me: The Strange Lives of Venomous Sea Creatures talks about some of the venomous, poisonous, and dangerous sea creatures all around the world. From the tiny star pufferfish to the giant lion’s mane sea jelly, all sorts of toxic ocean life are described in this book. I really liked this book, and I think other people would really like it too. This book describes animals that most people don’t get to see every day. Some things are so rare to see pictures of, and most people don’t get to learn about them in school. I loved that every animal taught about in this book has a photo to go with it, and I really found the pictures fascinating. Even as someone who loves ocean life, I still learned a lot of new information about invertebrates and fish from this book. Learning how different animals, like the cone snail, hunt and eat was so cool. For example, the cone snail shoots out a harpoon-shaped dart that injects venom into its prey. The prey is instantly paralyzed by the neuro-toxin from the dart. Then the cone snail’s mouth stretches larger than itself and swallows the prey whole. That is the stuff of nightmares! This book is for people ages 7 and up who are fans of ocean life and lovers of the less-cuddly animals in the world.
