Frank  Nischk - The Fabulous World of Nasty Creatures


Curious anecdotes, intriguing facts – a book that opens our eyes for the hidden beauties of nature

What does a cricket have in common with a string instrument? Are there really beetles that can dim their light organs? And how come that a certain kind of grasshopper sometimes has red legs and sometimes green ones? Just a whim of nature or has evolution brought about a new variety? Cockroaches, ants, wasps, jellyfish and worms – very often it is the inconspicuous creatures, the ones that sting, those we find disgusting that surprise us most when we take a closer look at them.

Frank Nischk is an enthusiastic zoologist and loves insects, and he has many a surprise in store for us about the hidden beauty, the incredible diversity of form and the complex behaviour of insects, be they in the local flooded gravel pit or a tropical rainforest. Intriguing insights into the unknown habitats of underrated animal species!

»Entertaining and with a strong sense for situation humour.«
