INNER LIFE OF ANIMALS


INNER LIFE OF ANIMALS

PETER WOHLLEBEN    Book Number: 86771    Product format: Hardback

By the author of 'The Hidden Life of Trees', here are surprising observations of a hidden world. Mother deer that grieve? Horses that feel shame? Squirrels that adopt their grandchildren? We humans tend to assume that we are the only living things able to experience feelings intensely and consciously, but have you ever wondered what's going on in an animal's head? From the leafy forest floor to the inside of a beehive, this remarkable book takes us from microscopic levels of observation to the big philosophical, ethical and scientific questions. We hear stories of a grateful humpback whale, of a hedgehog who has nightmares, and of a magpie who commits adultery. We meet bees that plan for future, pigs who learn their own names, and crows that go tobogganing for fun. And at last we find out why wasps exist! Researchers are discovering that animals experience a rich emotional life that is ready to be explored, so open this book by the popular science writer and be surprised, humbled and filled with delight. 282pp.
