Did you know that dung beetles eat their own weight in poo every day? Or that dragonflies are expert fliers, but they can't walk? Or that ladybirds can squirt yellow blood out of their knees? This book zooms in on the weird and wonderful world of minibeasts - such as dragonflies, earwigs, fireflies and army ants - and the strange features that help them survive. Learn how the assassin bug sucks out its victims' insides, and meet the stylops parasite that can control bees' minds. The Zoom In On series shines a powerful light on a world so small that it's normally invisible. Scientists can zoom in on the strange creatures that live there. Now you can look down the microscope and see them too, if you dare...
