This volume explores the myriad variety of slime in the animal and plant kingdoms. Just what is hyena butter? How much slime can a hagfish produce in 60 seconds? Which animal produces a snotty sleeping bag? How does a bubble snail use mucus to get around? Which organism is the slime champion? From mucus-based 'love darts' to foamy protective saliva, this book oozes with eye-popping examples from more than 80 creatures that inhabit our natural world, complete with detailed, laugh-out-loud illustrations.
