the three interesting facts that I learned is that cockroachs lived on earth for two million years far longer than humans. Another fact I learned is that fire ant have poison that can paralyze insects and small animals. The last fact is that A piranha broad jaws have a row of razor sharp teeth that can slice through bones.
What i like about this book is that it tell me alot about the animals in the book. also it tell me what i should stay away from if i'm ever in one of those situation.
