SummaryAdd a Summary
There are many things in our world which are strange, extraordinary, amazing and simply unbelievable … and true.
Can you believe that giant squids can measure 18 meters in length and weigh 900 kilograms … or that octopuses can play with toys and even solve some puzzles? Is this possible? Yes, it is! Did you know that chameleons can change the colour of their skin to reflect their mood (or to blend in with their surroundings)? How about platypuses: have you ever suspected that these animals might have electrical receptors in their snouts to detect prey animals? Amazing – but true!
Here are a few more I-can’t-believe-it facts: a tsumani can move faster than a Boeing 777; on a clear night it’s possible to see as many as 2500 stars without using a telescope; a blue whale’s heart weighs as much as a motorcycle; a large African elephant can hold 10 litres of water in its trunk and the heaviest species of spider (the goliath spider) is bigger than an adult human’s hand ... large enough to eat a bird!
The world’s tiniest computer is the size of a grain of rice, yet it can take pictures, read temperatures and record pressure readings! Who knew?
Boggle your brain with many more astounding and fascinating facts about our incredible world from this colorfully-illustrated book.
