Enjoyed this exploration of how animals are responding to human encroachment , in many cases adapting to urban conditions. Of course, in other cases, they are going extinct rather than adapting . The author’s contention seems to be that it is happening and we ought to facilitate those that can adapt. It is controversial, but interesting and thought provoking

Lots of crazy stuff on this planet, folks.
I will never eat a squid again.
Now I know why spiders are usually in a hurry during a certain time of year.
My only complaint is that it would have been nice to have some color plates added to this book.
