Animal Planet: Strange, Unusual, Gross & Cool Animals by Charles Ghigna. 128 p. Liberty Street/ Time Inc. Books, October, 2016.
This book is absolutely gorgeous and crammed with trivia about tons of animals, many I have never heard of before! Sure, we've got our blobfish and our naked mole rat; but I never heard nor saw the likes of the red-lipped batfish or the frilled shark or the thorny dragon, and many more fascinating creatures. The photos are gorgeous, up-close-and-personal, like the one of the rare Philippine eagle, that has a wingspan of over 7 feet! Check it out!
