Explore the ingenious and funny behaviours found in the animal kingdom.

To survive in the animal kingdom, creatures big and small have to learn the tips and tricks that will help them survive, find the best food or just get along with one another. Find out how meerkat parents teach their babies how to hunt scorpions and how a clever blue tit figured how to break into milk bottles and taught all his friends, too. Discover how scientists figured out what great memories chimpanzees have.

Written by expert author Dr Ashley Ward, associate professor of Animal Behaviour at the University of Sydney, Australia, this humorous four-book series explores a wide range of animal behaviours from survival skills and animal communication to how animals learn and adapt to live in the most extreme environments.

The Zany Brainy Animals series combines funny and fascinating facts about the animal kingdom and includes behind the scenes stories in the 'Tales from the lab' panels about how scientists discover and study the featured animal behaviours. The amusing text covers key science topics such as adaptations, evolution and habitats.

This series isn't just a catalogue of fascinating animal facts. By including the process of investigation and discovery, this series aims to inspire readers to pursue careers in the field.

Perfect for readers 7+.
