Overview

Eggshells, antlers, dung, blood - anyone getting hungry? These are just some of the strange dinners that tempt animals from around the world. Some creatures gobble skin and clothing. Others lap up ooze and vomit. Though these foods may seem gross to us, they provide animals with important nutrients. Here's a sample from this book's buffet of disgusting delights: Some moths drink moisture from cows' eyes. Rats chew elephant toenails for oil. Slugs use toothy tongues to devour books and newspapers. Herring gull chicks and wolf pups eat vomit.

And it's not only animals - people eat strange things too.
