To many of us the curious creatures described so vividly in this book are so unfamiliar as to seem almost incredible. Taking a number of different forms of animal life to illustrate her point in each case, Erna Pinner gives examples of curious behaviour inthe struggle for food, in nest-building, in paternal nursing. She shows us birds that cannot fly and four-footed animals that can; creatures which, either for protection or for aggression, make themselves appear what they are not; creatures living on other creatures; the curious things that can and do come out of an egg, and so much more. 026385
