Discover the planet's weirdest and scariest predators. Our animal experts have found 40 of the planet's most bizarre species and ranked them in order of their oddness! With jaw-dropping facts and amazing photos, we reveal each creature's ferocity, beastly behaviour and cunning methods to catch their prey.

Every creature needs to eat to survive, and for many that means tucking into other animals! To do this, they've created clever ways to hunt and gobble up their unsuspecting 'lunch'. Inside World's Strangest Predators, kids will discover plants that feast on insects, a real-life dragon that can tackle a buffalo and the snake with a unique disguise for catching birds. And with our 'strange-o-meter', they can compare each creature's danger, cunning, ferocity and strangeness!
