The Truth About Animals - Lucy Cooke

The Truth About Animals is subtitled Stoned Sloths, Lovelorn Hippos, and Other Tales from the Wild Side of Wildlife.
This book covers a selection of the odd-ball animals that have confused and confounded zoologists and other scientists since humans first recorded their thoughts on the creatures we share the earth with. The thirteen species selected are interesting and varied. The author covers everything from their diet to their sex lives in a funny and informative way.
