Terrible plants and animals

Publisher: Lapis

Macabre stories always exert their fascinating power on anyone who reads them, but even more compelling is knowing that these poisonous, eerie and disgusting events happen for a specific reason: survival.

And so the little bug covers itself with the corpses of its victims to make itself unrecognizable, absurd alliances between crabs and trees can lead even a human to cardiac arrest, wonderful snails delight in poisons similar to that of the king cobra, beetles bombard (literally) naive animals, transforming them from predators into prey.

Each story is accompanied by the lively illustrations of Andrea Antinori and by a legend, the result of tradition or the scientific genius of Ticli, to explain to men how little their safety is taken for granted in a world in which patience and ingenuity. You have been warned!
