The world is a big, scary place. Like, it's terrifying. Especially when there are nasty predators around every corner. But the animals we're going to talk about aren't letting predators get in their way. Some of them are cute animals. Some are gross animals. And some are just totally weird animals. But evolution gave all these critters crazy ways to keep themselves safe. Safe and uneaten. Mostly they're about not getting eaten by other, bigger animals. Anyway, these insane animal defense mechanisms will blow your mind. And they'll probably also remind you of just how fantastic (and scary) nature can be.
