It's a vast world we live in, filled with many majestic, beautiful creatures.
It's also filled with foul bottom-feeders and mucus monsters who'll do just about anything to survive. Learn all about the crabs who only eat rotting flesh, called carrion, or how hippos helipcopter their poop and send in flying in many directions to mark their hunting territory. Picking noses may be forbidden at school, but it's how gorillas and orangutans clear their noses so they can smell food and predators. Chock full of glossy, high definition photographs of the world's slimiest, stinkiest, bloodiest creatures!
Nine year olds are clever little fellows and have lots of interests. Great presents for 9 year old boys are remote controlled cars or flying objects, science construction kits, anything that shoots, or outdoor gear. Magic is popular and anything involving pranks will appeal to that 9 year old sense of fun. Or get them a great book.
