Real-life Monsters is a four book-series that brings you up close to the strangest and deadliest animals to show why they are how they are. Each title presents a top 10 of nature’s most unusual critters, scored and ranked according to weirdness.

In Scaly, Slippery Creatures brings you a rogues’ gallery of reptiles, some of which slithered across the Earth before the dinosaurs, over 250 million years ago. Among the strangest snakes, lizards and other reptiles on parade is a real-life dragon, ginormous crocodiles and a beautiful but bizarre frilled lizard.
