內容簡介


長久以來,人類對動物的認識大多建立在一代又一代人的主觀感知上。人們慣於將自身的價值觀投射在特定動物身上──駱駝吃苦耐勞、狐狸老奸巨猾。然而,褪去人類強加的標籤,動物的真實樣貌又是如何?由專業動物學家領路,本書將以詼諧的視角觀看顛覆人類想像的動物百態!一個小提示:企鵝其實是病態的自戀狂外加劈腿慣犯……

History is full of strange animal stories, invented by the brightest and most influential, from Aristotle to Disney, and they reveal as much about us and the things we believe as they do about the animals they misrepresent. We once thought that eels were born from sand, that swallows migrated to the moon, and that bears gave birth to formless lumps that were licked into shape by their mothers.

In The Unexpected Truth About Animals, zoologist Lucy Cooke unravels many such myths, revealing the fascinating – and often hilarious – facts she’s uncovered while chasing hyenas, spying on tobogganing penguins and stalking drunken moose. You’ll learn why sloths risk their lives to poo, how bats joined the Allies in the Second World War, and the mystery of the beaver’s balls. And you'll discover that even the most outlandish theories may have some truth in them after all.
