Illustrations by Juan Carlos Barberis * The definitive inquiry into the secret communication and behavior of animals for animal-lovers of all ages. * The behavior and body language of animals such as the Giant Panda, Gray Wolf, Nile Crocodile, Plains Zebra, African Elephant and Bald Eagle are brought to life through 200 illustrations. * Organized just the way exhibits are set up at the zoo, the text provides in-depth explanations on how to determine and interpret the social, familial, interactive and private behavior of these animals. * Janine M. Benyus, a knowledgeable zookeeper, draws from extensive research of animal behaviorists and explains why and how these creatures scratch, run, bathe, preen, stretch, yawn, play and eat, court their mates, confront one another, give birth to young and keep them fed.
