Summary
The definitive guide to the most exceptional creatures on Earth, Animal Record Breakers lists the achievers and the unique in the animal kingdom. These are not only records like fastest and largest. These are the truly unusual, like the most bizarre defense (three species of horned lizard can squirt blood from their eyes over a distance of four feet or 1.2 m); and the worst climber (western fence lizards fall out of their oak tree homes about 12,000 times a year). There are myth-busters (centipedes have the most legs, not millipedes) and fascinating stories (two "dead" specimens of desert snail were glued onto a museum display tablet only to come out of hibernation four years later). In all, there are almost 900 records that show the diversity and wonder of the animal kingdom
