Favorite Animal Non-Fiction

Beskrivning
The mind of the raven, the voyage of the turtle... the weeping of the elephant, the spell of the tiger: there is so much to learn about the animals that share our planet! Our List of the Month this February is devoted to our favorite non-fiction works about animals. Each participant may vote on ten titles. Please only downvote titles if they do not fit the theme, and are either not about animals, or not non-fiction.

Förklaringar
jeshakespeare: I have read this book and found it fascinating! It was a library signed copy too which helped me bond with the author at the time.
auldhouse: So much to learn about Octopuses! (And yes, as Montgomery explains it is Octopuses not Octopi).

Förklaringar
Stan47: In addition to the observations about wolves, the books is a hilarious commentary on the foibles of the Canadian provincial government at that time.

Förklaringar
birder4106: Für mich ein richtungsweisendes Buch der Naturgeschichte. Dazu gehört meiner Meinung nach auch die würdigung von Alfred Russel Wallace zum gleichen Thema. Und natürlich das Buch "Die Entstehung der Kontinente und Ozeane" von Alfred Wegener.

Stan47: I read this book as a kid, in the Reader's Digest. When I read the complete book as a senior citizen, it was even better than I'd remembered.

Förklaringar
paradoxosalpha: Chapters delve into the relations between humans and specific animal species: notably pigeons, squid, horses, and butterflies. It is so a book about animals, including human animals.
itstheblob : This looks like it's primarily a sociological or philosophical work moreso than an animal book- at least that's what I'm understanding from the description and tags...
