Hirsch comes a fascinating book that introduces these animals and delves into the science behind their senses.

Featured animals include the star-nosed mole with its highly developed nose, the deadly sidewinder rattlesnake which uses its pits to strike its prey, and the electric eel that uses electroreception to sense its prey.
