Product Description & Reviews

Illustrations by Juan Carlos Barberis * The definitive inquiry into the secret communication and behavior of animals for animal-lovers of all ages. * The behavior and body language of animals such as the Giant Panda, Gray Wolf, Nile Crocodile, Plains Zebra, African Elephant and Bald Eagle are brought to life through 200 illustrations. * Organized just the way exhibits are set up at the zoo, the text provides in-depth explanations on how to determine and interpret the social, familial, interactive and private behavior of these animals. * Janine M. Benyus, a knowledgeable zookeeper, draws from extensive research of animal behaviorists and explains why and how these creatures scratch, run, bathe, preen, stretch, yawn, play and eat, court their mates, confront one another, give birth to young and keep them fed. Author Janine M. Benyus transforms the rather scholarly discourse of animal communication into a tome that is clear and engaging--making this the perfect book for animal lovers of all ages. Benyus, a zookeeper and an expert on animal behavior, has spent years researching and studying the body language and verbal communication of zebras, lions, bald eagles, giant pandas, and dolphins to name but a few. The early chapters of her book take the form of a simple primer--with short but fascinating information on DNA, the role of habitat in the animal kingdom, feeding, predatory behavior, and the many forms of animal communication. The author then guides us on a worldwide journey, exploring the quintessential animals of each continent with a detailed look at the behavior of each species. You'll discover, for example, that gorillas signify their superiority by growling--so it's probably best to stay away from a grumbling gorilla! Learn why giraffes like to lick each other; what a crocodile is signifying when it lifts its spout; and how a peacock defends its territory. The Secret Language and Remarkable Behavior of Animals is illustrated throughout with ornate pencil drawings by Juan Carlos Barberis, a former artist for the Museum of Natural History in New York. --Naomi Gesinger
