About The Book
Early in his career, Lloyd Spencer Davis became fascinated by penguins and the questions they pose. Why can’t they fly? Why are they more like fish than birds — more comfortable in the water than on land?
As a biologist, Davis wanted to know how penguins solve the many compromises they must make. He reveals that these box-office favourites are not the cute mate-for-life animals we might have been led to believe. Rather, they are a lot like us — disturbingly so.
This engaging writer is foremost a storyteller. He takes us to the remote locations where he’s studied these much-loved animals: from Antarctica to the Galapagos Islands, and from the wild coasts of Argentina to New Zealand.
In this many-layered and hugely entertaining book, Davis explores a world that few experience, and uncovers fascinating information about these endearing creatures, caught between two worlds.
