Did you know that Octopuses are great escape artists? They can squeeze out of the smallest openings. Spotted Skunks can do handstands, who knew? They stand on their front paws and raise their tails to make them look bigger and more threatening to their prey before they spray. Butterflies hover around Spotted River Turtles to sip their tears and Pilot Fish actually swim in a sharks mouth and act like a toothbrush cleaning food particles out of their teeth. In exchange for this service the shark doesn't eat them. These fun facts about animals and many more can be read about in this new book. Its a quick read for anyone who loves animals and the strange things they do to survive in the wild. After all, what would you do if you thought you were going to be eaten by something bigger?
