Look Big: And Other Tips for Surviving Animal Encounters of All Kinds is a lighthearted but legitimately helpful illustrated field guide for what to do in the face of 50 of our most feared—or frustrating—animals. From mountain lions to moose, bears to bees, rats, raccoons, mice… even lice!  As humans encroach on wild places, encounters with animals have become increasingly commonplace. But what are the rules for facing a moose up close? Do you run from a coyote or stand your ground? How deadly, really, are black widow spiders, rattlesnakes, and sharks?
Packed with expert tips, fascinating animal facts, and harrowing true tales (from writers like Peter Orner and Samin Nosrat), Look Big is a must-have survival guide for outdoor, urban, and suburban adventurers alike. If you have ever feared the approach of a grizzly, the spray of a skunk, or an army of cockroaches in the kitchen, this book is for you.
