About this book

Did you know that dolphins don't drink water, don't chew their food, and don't sleep? Despite being one of the world's best loved and most studied animals, dolphins continue to surprise us with their impressive skills, strange behavior, and bizarre abilities. Dolphin researcher Justin Gregg highlights the most eyebrow-raising findings from the world of dolphin science in 22 Fantastical Facts about Dolphins.

Showcasing some of the less well-known dolphin traits like their ability to call each other by name, sense magnetic fields, or their immunity to drowning, the book aims to impress even the most knowledgeable dolphin aficionado or trivia buff. Gregg has travelled the world studying dolphins in the wild, and supplements the scientific information in the book with his own (often humorous) take on dolphin behavior. Aimed at an audience ages 12 and over, 22 Fantastical Facts about Dolphins translates the latest scientific findings into fun and witty prose that will delight dolphin lovers everywhere.
