Every page reveals incredible information about the weird and wonderful world of animals.

Did you know that the ocean-dwelling bootlace worm is longer than an Olympic-sized swimming pool? "But it can't be true", you say.
Yes, it really is! It Can't Be True! Animals brings you record-breaking facts and amazing stories that you can see for yourself. Eye-popping photos and stunning illustrations show you what the numbers mean, comparing the extraordinary with the familiar.
