Summary

Insects that look like leaves, snakes that play dead, fish that fly, and toads with poisonous skin—these creatures are among many that defend themselves in fascinating ways. Animal Defenses presents the wide variety of physical and behavioral adaptations used by animals and insects in their struggle to survive and shows how scientists continue to make new discoveries about the age-old maneuvering between predator and prey.
