Zoology as it was never taught in school . . .
"Wild Sex" manages to be both an extremely entertaining and a most informative pop-zoology text. Often the wild behavior of the other creatures inhabiting this planet has been completely misconstrued, and erroneously anthropomorhisied. Sexual behavior is viewed in context, starting with the question "why sex evolved". The text is enlivened is with many surprising examples of extreme behavior and bizarre adaptations, and clarified with some 40 black and white illustrations.
Rape, murder and other acts which in a human society would be classified as "crimes of passion" are not quite the rare aberrations in nature we have been lead to believe.
