Life on planet Earth is not weirder than we imagine. It's weirder than we are capable of imagining...

This is the momentous story of the millions of species - sometimes unimaginably strange - that make up the animal kingdom.

Humans, blue whales, rats, birds of paradise, ridiculous numbers of beetles, molluscs the size of a bus, bdelloid rotifers who haven't had sex for millions of years and creatures called water bears (you can boil them, freeze them and fire them off into space without killing them) - we're all in it together.

In this breathtakingly audacious book, Simon Barnes opens our eyes to the real marvels of the planet we live on.
