Whether it's the biggest, the smallest, the fastest, the deadliest or just the downright weirdest, Guinness World Records: Wild Things turns the spotlight on the best of the beasts!

From gentle giants to killer bugs, powerful predators to cunning prey, and backyard wildlife to species on the brink, the animal kingdom is crawling with record-breakers. Wild Things is your ultimate guide to nature's super-star animals.

There's a special chapter all about prehistoric record-breakers, too. Unearth which ancient animals ruled over the real Jurassic world, from the tallest dinosaur and the dino with the most powerful bite to the largest flying creature ever to soar Earth's skies - with a wingspan the size of an F-16 jet!

You'll also hear from zoology experts and some of the biggest conservation stars including Sir David Attenborough, Dame Jane Goodall, the Irwin family and Deadly 60's Steve Backshall. They share their standout wildlife experiences and favourite record-breaking animals, as well as top tips for anyone hoping to follow in their footsteps.

Ready to find out where the real wild things are - and the records that they hold? Then it's time to unleash the wildest GWR book yet!

About the Author

In 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver, the then managing director of the Guinness Brewery, went on a shooting party and became involved in an argument. Which was the fastest game bird in Europe - the golden plover or the grouse? He realized then that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove popular. He was right!

Sir Hugh's idea became reality when Norris and Ross McWhirter, who had been running a fact-finding agency in London, were commissioned to compile what became The Guinness Book of Records. The first edition was bound on August 27, 1955, and went to the top of the British bestseller lists by Christmas that year.

Since then, Guinness World Records™ has become a household name and the global leader in world records. No other enterprise collects, confirms, accredits and presents world record data with the same investment in comprehensiveness and authenticity.
