really liked it
bookshelves: nature-nonfic

I enjoyed this, even though I kept saying, "Ick. Oh, yuck. Really? Gross!" all the way through. Guinea worms and bot flies and parasitic wasps and killer hornets... and even more. I was mesmerized and horrified and bemused and educated. Just the thing I needed.
