The Frog With Self-Cleaning Feet And other extraordinary tales from the animal world
A miscellany of fascinating animal facts and figures: the weird, the wonderful and the downright unbelievable.
Since time immemorial, people have been fascinated by what animals do and how they relate to us, and these enigmatic beasts have never failed to surprise us. Did you know that songbirds can be scared to death, literally? That parrots can talk because they use their tongues in the same way as humans, and that humpback whales catch fish in nets made by blowing bubbles?
This delightful book is full of entertaining surprises, revelations and unusual information. Nowadays we study them (and eat them and pollute them into oblivion), but whatever we do to them, somehow most of these amazing creatures keep bouncing back.
