The Unexpected Truth About Animals
We live our lives surrounded by stories of animals from the magic of Disney to the documentories of David Attenborough, we are endlessly fastinated. But when it comes to understanding animals, we’ve got a long way to go. Often when we look at animals, baby pandas or penguins ‘holding hands’, or lazy sloths, we project our own values – innocence, laziness, hard work – onto animals. So you’ve probably never considered that moose get drunk and that penguins are notorious cheats. Sometimes the only thing stranger than what animals are capable of is what we thought they were capable of. Zoologist Lucy Cooke explores the way humans have misunderstood and misrepresented animals over the ages, from Aristotle to the Age of Enlightenment and through to today, to show that the stories we create reveal as much about us as they do about the animals. Astonishing, illuminating and laugh-out-loud funny.
