DNF as the due date loomed large. A fascinating read I’ll pick up again. Amazingly descriptive writing that did not flow quickly, but made you stop and consider.

Different animals perceive and experience the world differently due to their different senses. It is difficult and necessary to overcome the biases from how WE perceive the world if we want to really understand other animals. For example, a zebra's stripes are not camouflage because from a distance all a lion can see is a zebra-shaped object and the stripes have no effect on that.

Fascinating.

What a fascinating book of both empathy and scientific exploration. Yong discusses the different ways that animals and insects experience the world. The details are heady, but even if you skim, there is a lot to learn--and to appreciate. I'm glad that my book club selected this read for March 2024.
