STRANGE ANIMALS by Helen Mather-Smith Mindlin


Email this review


Steaming jungles, coral reefs, ocean floors, burning deserts provide the nesting and nurturing ground for a myriad of weird creatures. Miss Mindlin has gathered a full collection of startling data on the little known habits of incredible animals. Bizarre marine iguanas, plover birds who pick the teeth of crocodiles for their food supply, manatees, who gave rise to the ""existence"" of mermaids, English butterflies who are ""milked"" by ants, strange whales with nine foot spear teeth, etc. The manners in which these strange animals search for food, protect their young, defend themselves, migrate and hibernate will intrigue any student of animal habits.
