Extreme Animals

Scientific American Explores Big Ideas

As a species, humans tend to view ourselves as the top of the natural order for our exceptional intelligence and emotional depth, but there are many other metrics for determining what makes a species remarkable. This volume looks at some of the world's strongest, fastest, and strangest animals and explains how they possess these extreme capabilities and characteristics. It also explains unusual animal behavior and considers other measures of intelligence and emotion that are less human-centric, creating new opportunities to better understand our animal friends. While there are many barriers to understanding what exactly animals think, feel, and experience, research continues to offer greater access to the animal kingdom.
