The Secret Language of Animals

Janine M Benyus

Primates, carnivores and hoofed animals share basic expressive similarities such as the use of ears and eyes to show excitement, alarm or aggression. This book explains how such actions can be interpreted and reveals how an understanding of environment can make sense of behaviour. Starting with a primer on how such core motivations as feeding, breeding and avoiding predators influence conduct and demeanour, the book is in sections dealing with animals in different regions, and is illustrated with detailed line drawings.
