TOOTH AND CLAW by Russell Freedman

TOOTH AND CLAW

A Look At Animal Weapons

KIRKUS REVIEW

Unlike Schlein's Snake Fight, Rabbit Fight, and More (p. 29, J-79), this makes no generalizations about animal fighting and no attempt to introduce concepts or provide a theoretical framework. Instead, Freedman proceeds from one type of weapon to another--essentially, sprays, quills, teeth, claws, horns, and poisons--and for each, takes a close look at two or more animals who exhibit some variety of the weapon in question. Spectacular photos from various sources truly illustrate the points at hand; and Freedman's direct, well-focused descriptions inform without trumped-up dramatics.
