So you think you’re special? Just because people have built cities, invented pop-up toasters and put people on the Moon that they are somehow different from (or better than) other living things? Well it’s time to think again! Humanimal explores the interconnections of the human and natural worlds in ways you never before imagined...
Inside you will discover how slime molds learn how to navigate through a maze; how rats are ticklish and how it makes them laugh out loud; how elephants have funerals for their lost loved ones; how bees vote in elections to decide where to locate their nests; how crows use cars to crack nuts and a whole lot more! This richly illustrated, mesmerizing exploration shows that humans and other animals don’t just live on the same planet, they also share many of the same patterns of behavior, making us all fellow players in the drama that is life on Earth.
Fascinating and stunningly illustrated, Humanimal explores and celebrates the astonishing ways in which animals and humans are alike.
