National Geographic Kids—Everything Predators

So while working on my Everything Predators book, I’ve come across some bizarre creatures that I wanted to share.

Goblin Sharks—these beasts live in the dark, depths of the ocean, so are rarely seen. They have jaws full of needle-like teeth that shoot forward (reminding me of the monsters in the Alien movies) to snatch prey.

Amazonian Giant Centipede—okay, anything with more than four legs can be kind of creepy. But when it has almost 100 legs and can be the size of your forearm, that is scary-creepy. And these centipedes can catch bats!

Mantis Shrimp—these little guys (most are only a few inches long) pack a punch powerful enough punch to crack the shells of snails and crabs.

Archerfish—an apt name, as they shoot water at bugs, hoping to knock them into the water, where they become fish food.

And those are just a few of the cool predators that I’m including in this book.
