Science in the Wild: Adventures of a Zoologist
Publisher Marketing: Science in the Wild is a book for children aged 7 to 11. It talks about thrilling adventures, dangerous science and funny experiences with wild creatures. Have fun with Porcupine Willy, watch Octopus Paulino and be afraid by Leo, the Leopard. Travel with the Zoologist called U. K. to Africa, Naples in Italy and Sri Lanka. Meet Buffalos, Snakes, Elephants, Cheetahs, Flying Dogs and Dragons in dangerous and strange situations. Learn which kind of research has to be done to understand behavior of wild animals better. "Just stay as you are and don't move," Richard whispered . "If you don't scare or anger them, they won't bother you. Every now and then they come into the camp. They're only curious." Then I heard the noise again. It really was just like thunder. Only it sounded as if it was directly in front of the tent. But it was much, much quieter than thunder. Now I could feel that something was feeling its way along the side of the tent. As it was doing this it came up against my camp bed, and as a result I almost fell out of it. And then it was all over. Anxiously I whispered to Richard: "Are those lions by any chance?" No reply. Perhaps he had already fallen asleep again? He whispered back, "No, don't worry. It's only elephants. A whole family. We know them well and they know us, too."
