The Whole Truth About Animals That People Love to Hate

Audiobook CD - 2016
Rate this:
Rats, mosquitoes, bats, cockroaches, leeches, vultures - it's easy to fear and despise them. But are they all bad? You probably know that rats destroy food supplies and can cause house fires when they gnaw on electrical wires, but did you know their supersensitive noses can help detect tuberculosis or even land mines? Are these conventionally icky critters really public enemies, or do they have merits worth appreciating? Takes a close look at what we dislike about each of 10 unpopular animals, and then presents the flip side : these very same animals are often smart, helpful to humans and the environment, or inspiring to scientists.
