BIRDS, BEES AND EDUCATED FLEAS

BRUCE MONTAGUE    Book Number: 87867    Product format: Paperback

Sub-titled 'An A -Z Guide to the Sexual Predilections of Animals from Aardvarks to Zebras', here is an amusing book on the courtship and mating habits of animals, including Homo sapiens sapiens. The albatross, the orang-utan, barnacles and bats, mocking bird and ravens, caterpillars and cats, eels and elephants, goats and gonopods, octopus and opossums, rabbits and reindeer, spiders and sponges, wasps and wolves, they all do it. Revelations include why hens are happy to spend their lives laying unfertilised eggs, how barnacles reproduce while staying cemented onto a boat's bottom, why crickets have ears on their front legs, why the male Argentine lake duck has a 17" penis shaped like a corkscrew, how dragonflies in their naiad stage breathe through their bottoms, how primitive worms were the blueprint for human beings and how bats get it together hanging upside down. Endlessly fascinating snippets. 238pp in decorated paperback.
