EVERY CREATURE HAS A STORY: WHAT SCIENCE REVEALS ABOUT ANIMAL BEHAVIOUR – JANAKI LENIN
We are surrounded by an incredible variety of lifeforms. They have evolved over centuries to develop features and skills that have helped them survive and set them apart.
Have you ever wondered the price giraffes pay for their long necks? The neck increases its blood pressure to pump blood up to its brain, which endangers its life every time it bends down to drink water. Or did you know that female nightingales decide which male will share the burdens of parenthood with them by listening to prospective candidates’ songs to gauge if they’d make good fathers. Much like a reality show contest for the animal kingdom
With ‘Every Creature Has a Story’, Janaki Lenin draws us towards the wonders of the natural world with her thought provoking and witty words. We promise that you’ll never look at nature in the same way again after reading this book.
