A companion book to SIXTEEN LEGS: A Visit to the Queen of the Dark, SIXTEEN LEGS: Kinky Love is a photographic journey through the ecology and behaviour of the Tasmanian Cave Spider, which sits at the heart of the story.

Suitable for older school audiences, this book details the fascinating facts uncovered through the 25-year research project that investigated the lifecyle of these extraordinary animals, all lavishly illustrated with the award-winning images of cinematographer Joe Shemesh.

Alongside the science, there is also a background to how the filming was undertaken, the creation of the Enter the Cave Exhibition, the education projects attached to SIXTEEN LEGS, and the artistic interpretations of the story by students across Tasmania.
