Mass Migrations, Mating Rituals, and Other Fascinating Animal BehaviorsBook - 2016
People are captivated by wild animals--by their strength and their size and by the things they do to stay alive. In this book, zoologist Vladimer Dinets dives deep into this wonder, allowing curious readers to discover just how spectacular wild animals can be. In the rich, fully illustrated pages you'll discover the migration of gray whales along the Pacific coast, the dancing alligators of the Everglades, the synchronized blinking of fireflies near Tennessee, the swarms of feeding bats over the Mississippi River, the blue-glowing scorpions of the Southwest desert, hundreds of wintering tundra swans in New Jersey, and much more.
