Editorial Reviews


The "wow, cool" factor is almost off the charts in this half-hour on all creatures poisonous yet often beautiful. Toads squirt poison from a gland behind each eye, a jewel wasp buries a cockroach alive so its babies will have something to feast on, and scientists milk venom from a snake so they can make anti-venom. There's no shortage of chill-inducing scenes like these. Like many videos in the Amazing Animals series, the compelling footage is slickly strewn together with easy-to-comprehend narrative that all but keeps you glued to your seat. The scoop on poisonous sea creatures is here, too, including the jellyfish and sea anemone, complete with Jacques Cousteau-quality pictures and new-age mood music. Any child who ever wandered into the back yard to catch a critter will think twice after this parade of everything from cobras and rattlesnakes to black widow spiders and bees. --Valerie J. Nelson

This is a great movie to watch and learn about poisonous animals. And kids will learn how animals use that poison to defend themselves from other animals that want to eat them and how they use it to catch their prey.
