Description

Ready for an unflinching foray into some of the most brutal moments Mother Nature has to offer? Feast your gaze on Deadly Instinct, an action-packed exploration of the toothier side of nature, magnificently illustrated with award-winning wildlife photos drawn from the National Geographic Image Collection. This eye-popping chronicle is a visceral testament to the will of every creature to survive. A leopard seal snatches and dispatches a penguin in a grisly underwater drama. Steller's sea eagles wage an angry battle over a single precious fish. Cheetahs team up to take down an antelope in an unusual and rarely documented way. And a giant pill millipede rolls itself into a protective, armored ball to escape predation. You'll marvel at the intriguing techniques used by would-be prey to outsmart their attackers and discover why learning to play rough is a vital skill for many young creatures. To create this stunning collection, the photographers called on their well-honed skills, field-tested courage, and high-tech camera equipment. The result is a visual thriller of near-cinematic beauty, a mesmerizing life-and-death drama, and a showcase of the world's most incredible animals, as you've never seen them before.
