When Elephants Listen with Their Feet: Discover Extraordinary Animal Senses (Paperback)
Humans experience the world through sight, hearing, touch, taste, and smell. We even have lesser-known senses that tell us about things like temperature and balance. Most animals share most of those senses with us--but some go beyond. There are birds that can feel the Earth's magnetic field, fish that use electricity, and plenty of creatures that communicate through vibrations. We can't interpret the meaning of an elephant's faraway stomp, but learning how they keep in touch with family across the wide savannah helps us understand that we are more alike than different.
Featuring accessible text from Emmanuelle Grundmann, inviting art from Cl mence Dupont, and informational sidebars, a glossary, an index of animals, and a standard index, When Elephants Listen with their Feet is a lively nonfiction book that encourages curiosity about--and respect for--the animals with which we share our planet.
