Equal parts nature guide, adventure story, and coffee table book! People are captivated by wild animals?by their strength and their size and by the things they do to stay alive. Wildlife Spectacles dives deep into this wonder, allowing curious readers to discover just how spectacular wild animals can be. Zoologist Vladimer Dinets reveals hundreds of amazing examples of animal behaviour across North America, explaining why they happen, how they work, and where they can be seen in person. In the rich, fully illustrated pages you'll discover the migration of grey whales along the Pacific coast, the scuba diving of spiny lobsters in Florida, the synchronized blinking of fireflies near Tennessee, the swarms of feeding bats over the Mississippi River, the blue-glowing scorpions of the Southwest desert, hundreds of wintering tundra swans in New Jersey, and much more. AUTHOR: Vladimir Dinets was born in Russia and immigrated to the United States as a young man. He obtained his PhD in zoology from the University of Miami in 2011, with a focus on animal behaviour. He has travelled and photographed extensively all over North America for 17 years. He is the author of Dragon Songs and the Peterson Guide to Finding Mammals in North America. SELLING POINTS: ? A Fully Illustrated Wildlife Adventure: The diverse and comprehensive content and stunning photos make this a standout among nature titles for a general audience. This is a popular category with readers, as shown in the strong sales of books like The Sixth Extinction, Beyond Words, and Gifts of the Crow. ? Organised by Animal Behaviour: The book is organized by three main behaviours: migration, mating rituals, and predators and prey. Each part contains two or three chapters that focus on related behaviours shared by different types of animals as diverse as buffalo, pronghorns, whooping cranes, and Mormon crickets. ? Author is a Mediagenic Zoologist: Dinets is a skilful and engaging writer with an intriguing background who will be highly promotable; his agent is currently working with The Discovery Channel on a potential show based on the book. 200 colour
