1 The Carnivorous Carnival - Lemony Snicket
Auteur : Lemony Snicket
Genre : Family & Relationships
Everybody loves a carnival! Who can fail to delight in the colourful people, the unworldly spectacle, the fabulous freaks?

A carnival is a place for good family fun - as long as one has a family, that is. For the Baudelaire orphans, their time at the carnival turns out to be yet another episode in a now unbearable series of unfortunate events. In fact, in this appalling ninth instalment in Lemony Snicket′s serial, the siblings must confront a terrible lie, a caravan, and Chabo the wolf baby. With millions of readers worldwide, and the Baudelaire′s fate turning from unpleasant to unseemly, it is clear that Lemony Snicket has taken nearly all the fun out of children′s books.

Ages 10+

3 Carnivorous Nights - Margaret Mittelbach & Michael Crewdson
Auteur : Margaret Mittelbach & Michael Crewdson
Genre : Travel & Adventure
Packing an off-kilter sense of humor and keen scientific minds, authors Margaret Mittelbach and Michael Crewdson take off with renowned artist Alexis Rockman on a postmodern safari. Their mission? Tracking down the elusive Tasmanian tiger. This mysterious, striped predator was once the world’s largest carnivorous marsupial. It had a pouch like a kangaroo and a jaw that opened impossibly wide to reveal terrifying choppers. Tragically, this rare and powerful animal was hunted into extinction in the early part of the twentieth century. Or was it?

Journeying first to the Australian mainland and then south to the wild island of Tasmania, these young naturalists brave a series of bizarre misadventures and uproarious wildlife encounters in their obsessive search for the long-lost beast.

From an ancient cave featuring an aboriginal painting of the tiger to a lab in Sydn

6 The Carnivorous Lamb - Agustin Gomez-Arcos
Auteur : Agustin Gomez-Arcos
Genre : Gay
The latest in the Little Sister’s Classics series resurrecting gay and lesbian literary gems: a viciously funny, shocking yet ultimately moving 1975 novel, an allegory of Franco’s Spain, about a young gay man (the self-described “carnivorous lamb”) coming of age with a mother who despises him, a father who ignores him, and a brother who loves him.

14 Carnivorous Plants - Dan Torre
Auteur : Dan Torre
Genre : Nature
Carnivorous plants are a unique botanical group, possessing modified leaves to trap, kill, and consume small creatures. As a result they are often depicted as killers in films and literature—from Audrey in Little Shop of Horrors to the world-dominating plants of The Day of the Triffids—yet many people regard carnivorous plants as exotic and beautiful specimens to collect and display.

In this abundantly illustrated and highly entertaining book, Dan Torre describes the evolution, structure, and scientific background of carnivorous plants. Examining their cultural and social history, he also shows how they have inspired our imagination and been represented in art, literature, cinema, animation, and popular culture.

From the Venus flytrap—a species endemic to the Carolinas—to pitcher plants, this fascinating history of these singular, arresting, be

18 Diversity of Arthropods Preyed Upon by the Carnivorous Plant Pinguicula Moranensis (Lentibulariaceae) in a Temperate Forest of Central Mexico (Report) - Southwestern Naturalist
Auteur : Southwestern Naturalist
Genre : Life Sciences
The immediate benefit of a carnivorous habit in plants is a significant increase in rate of photosynthesis derived from a higher concentration of nutrients in leaves (Aldenius et al., 1983; Wakefield et al., 2005; Ellison, 2006). Plants obtain nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium from captured prey; nonetheless, ca. 60% of nitrogen is sequestered by bacteria (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002; Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008). Incorporation of nutrients coming from prey allows plants to assign resources to roots for uptake of nitrogen (Karlsson and Carlsson, 1984; Adamec, 2002). In this way, economy of nutrients in carnivorous plants, expressed in terms ofefficiencies of use of photosynthetic nutrients, is closely linked to capture of prey. This resolves deficiencies of nutrients that generally characterize the substrate where the plant grows (Farnsworth and Ellison, 2008)

19 The Carnivorous Plants - Francis Ernest Lloyd
Auteur : Francis Ernest Lloyd
Genre : Nature
The experience which has led to the writing of this book began in 1929 when, examining a species related to Utricularia gibba, I made an observation of some importance in understanding the mechanism of the trap. This begot a desire to study as many other species of the genus as I could obtain for comparison, primarily to determine the validity of my conclusions. My feeling that research in this field was promising was strengthened by the discovery that the pertinent literature was singularly barren of the information most needed, that is to say, precise accounts of the structure of the entrance mechanisms of the traps. And an examination of much herbarium material, because of the meagreness of the underground parts of the terrestrial types resulting from indifferent methods of collection, forced the conclusion that, even had other difficulties inherent in studying dried material not inte

20 The Carnivorous City - Toni Kan
Auteur : Toni Kan
Genre : Mysteries & Thrillers
"Rabato Sabato aka Soni Dike is a Lagos big boy; a criminal turned grandee, with a beautiful wife, a sea-side mansion and a questionable fortune. Then one day he disappears and his car is found in a ditch, music blaring from the speakers. Soni's older brother, Abel Dike, a teacher, arrives in Lagos to look for his missing brother. Abel is rapidly sucked into the unforgiving Lagos maelstrom where he has to navigate encounters with a motley cast of common criminals, deal with policemen all intent on getting a piece of the pie, and contend with his growing attraction to his brother's wife. Carnivorous City is a story about love, family and just desserts but it is above all a tale about Lagos and the people who make the city by the lagoon what it is."

21 The Carnivorous Collection - Deborah McKellar Daniel
Auteur : Deborah McKellar Daniel
Genre : Short Stories
An ordinary situation, a snapshot of time, could be something completely the opposite of what you believe or have been taught. I challenge you to ponder the following simple questions and to consider if they have ever occurred in your life and what you thought was the explanation:

Have you ever come upon a beautiful scenic area and were able to get the perfect picture because nobody else was there?

When exploring mountain trails, did you come across a cave that was so obscured by bushes that you decided not to disturb it?

Why do you see various roads blocked off by locked, seemingly ancient, low metal gates on park roads?

Do you ever wonder who is driving beside you in the sports car that has windows tinted so dark you cannot see in?

Lastly, how many times have you driven on two-lane roads past pastures with only one cow in them?

22 Carnivorous Marsupials - Donna Racheal

23 Straminipilous Organisms Growing on Herbivorous Pirapitinga (Piaractus Brachypomus) and Carnivorous Piranha (Pygocentrus Nattereri) from Poland/Organismos Stramenophila Em Crescimento Na Herbivora Pirapitinga (Piaractus Brachypomus) E Na Carnivora Piranha (Pygocentrus Nattereri) Da Polonia (Report) - Brazilian Journal of Biology
Auteur : Brazilian Journal of Biology
Genre : Life Sciences
1. Introduction In their natural environment, Piaractus brachypomus and Pygocentrus nettereri inhabit inland waters of South America (Thorson, 1976; Menni et al., 1996). In many countries, including Poland, both species are reared in amateur aquaria for their characteristic body colouration and original appearance. In aquarium conditions, they sometimes alter their behaviour, e.g. predatory piranha lose their aggressive disposition, become anxious and skittish, retaining, however, their atractive look due to their colourful skin. The aim of this study was to supply some data to extend the list of straminipilous organisms growing on chosen parts of the body of the pirapitinga and piranha specimens, used as baits. The result was to compare the composition, abundance and diversity in water from three trophically different water bodies in Poland.
