The Unseen Powers of Animals
It has long been recognized that animals and plants possess mysterious and hidden powers which humans do not share. This book investigates such extrasensory feats and seemingly paranormal powers. The stories might defy belief, but they are solidly based on the latest scientific discoveries.
'SuperNatural' describes numerous examples of animals' mysterious powers: birds and other creatures that use the Earth's forces for navigation, to forecast the weather and even detect earthquakes; those that live life at the extreme limits - desert frogs that endure being buried alive for years and plants that set themselves on fire. The book also introduces creatures that exist in a different time world from ours, such as insects whose lives are crammed into a few minutes and reptiles for whom time virtually stands still. Finally, the book considers those powers of animals that connect with humans - phenomena such as pet healing and dolphin therapy.
Interweaving dazzling photographs with fascinating text, this book brings to life a world of strange views and supernatural perceptions. Science fiction becomes science fact on this journey to the outer limits of present knowledge.
