***Win Simon Watt’s new book***

For a chance to win a signed copy of Simon Watt’s brand new book The Ugly Animals - We Can’t all be Pandas, book your tickets for The Ugly Animal Roadshow or Dissections Uncut anytime between Friday 5 September and Wednesday 10 September.

On Channel 4′s Inside Nature’s Giants, scientists went under the skin of some massive animals to figure out what made them tick. Join presenter Simon Watt as we look at some of the fascinating science that didn't make the final cut. This lecture has appeared at the British, York, Edinburgh, Oxford and Newcastle Science Festivals as well as at many other events around the country.

Suitable for ages 12+

Simon is signing his book

Simon will also be signing copies of his new book, Ugly Animals – We Can’t all be Pandas between 14:00 and 15:00 on Saturday 13 September. The book aims to shine a light on some of the many ignored and unloved wonders of the animal kingdom. Their hideousness hides their incredible biology and means that we may not have noticed that they need our help. Copies of the book will be available to buy.
