From the Back Cover
Bugs that walk on water. Bugs that consume billions of tons of dung a day. Bugs stealthy enough to steal prey from a spider web. Bugs that can grow to 2,700 times their original weight in just two weeks. Bugs that can reattach their own limbs—even a severed head.
Bringing the weird world of Bugs to your fingertips, Fandex presents a field guide that marries vivid photographs of these beautiful and complex creatures with fascinating facts, stats, and lore about 47 insects, spiders, and other arthropods. (Arthropod: an invertebrate animal with a segmented body and jointed limbs—and the most diverse and plentiful group of animals ever to walk the earth.)
