Summary
  • Masson pays tribute to one hundred of his favorite animals, offering fascinating profiles and information about the daily lives of dolphins, hummingbirds, dugongs, hippos, kakapos, and other familiar and little-known creatures
  • The wondrous, remarkable, and outlandish activities of animals have long captured our curiosity, and no one has better explored or illuminated our fascination than Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, bestselling author of the groundbreaking Dogs Never Lie About Love and When Elephants Weep. Masson's genuine passion for our two- and four-legged, invertebrate, flippered, and finned friends has turned into his life's calling and earned him a reputation as one of our most provocative authorities on animal behavior. Now Masson shares his vast knowledge in this comprehensive and charming volume featuring one hundred of his favorite animals. Drawing upon this affable expert's own experience and extensive research, Altruistic Armadillos, Zenlike Zebras offers fascinating facts, colorful anecdotes, and surprising tidbits on familiar creatures (bottlenose dolphins, hummingbirds, kangaroos) as well as lesser-known yet equally entrancing critters (bonobos, kakapos, wombats). This guide includes gorgeous photographs and links to educational websites. - Jacket flap
