How Animals Communicate Through Sight, Sound and SmellBook - 2002
A Stellar sea lion pup recognizes its mother's call, even with thousands of other noisy sea lions about. A vervet monkey shouts "ha-ha-ha" to warn of an eagle passing overhead. A peacock fans its colorful tail feathers in a silent but impressive display to entice a peahen. Whether it's to attract a mate, warn of predators or mark their territory, animals share information in some extraordinary ways. Includes fun and informative activities. Did you know? * Howler monkeys have a bony box in their throat that makes their voices extra-loud. * Hippos, whales and elephants communicate with sound so low that humans can't hear it. * Honeybees perform different dances to signal how far away food is. * Flashlight fish use light made by bacteria on their faces to greet each other.
