About this deal

With over half a million words worth of diaries and crazy anecdotes, Steve is the perfect contributor for any travel, wildlife or conservation media. Discover the joy of reading with us, your trusted source for affordable books that do not compromise on quality. Deadly 60 gives each of the creatures a rating for their deadliness according to their size, speed and weapons. Steve Backshall has been climbing since his teens and has a genuine love affair with the mountains and with an environment that has the power to make a human being feel very small, very vulnerable and very alive.

He has just six months to travel six continents and find 60 of the deadliest creatures on the planet for the 26-part Children’s BBC series of the same name which will air on BBC1 and the CBBC Channel. Outside television, Steve started studying for his biology degree in 2000 with the Open University, attained his diploma in Natural Sciences and has completed one of his finals courses, though is struggling to find time to complete the degree! and these color photographs bring readers as close as theyd ever want to get to such dangerous game as Africa's Black Mamba, a snake whose lethal bite can kill an adult human in 15 minutes, and the mysterious, carnivorous Ghost Bat of northern Australia.it shows a lot of information about animals you might not know such as different snakes and many sea creatures. Including the renowned, the unexpected and the downright bizarre, this companion book to Steve Backshall’s high adrenaline tour of the world’s most deadly is not to be missed.

Saker once was one of them, until he met Sinter, and realised that the Clan was working for evil, rather than good.

In ‘Lost Land of the Volcano’, Steve was the first outsider to enter the Volcano Mount Bosavi – where the team discovered as many as 40 new species, including the largest rat in the world!

From lethal beauties to killer beasts, from the unseen to the unexpected, the one thing these creatures have in common is that they are all deadly to other animals. This book was recommended to me by a nine year old boy who professes to hate reading - so for me it is already a winner!
