Detector Dogs, Dynamite Dolphins, and More Animals with Super Sensory Powers

By Cara Giaimo, Christina Couch

Illustrated by Daniel Duncan

Meet incredible animals with all kinds of highly developed senses and learn about the jobs they do in this book full of amazing facts, cool science and exciting activities.

Fly alongside a photo-delivery pigeon, discover a honeybee’s electric secrets, and sail the high seas with a poop-sniffing dog detective on a mission to save endangered killer whales. All of these animals use their super senses, from echolocation to electroreception, to help human coworkers tackle real-world problems like pollution and global warming. With bright and entertaining text alongside colourful photos and illustrations, this book examines how each animal’s behaviour and biology makes it perfectly suited for the job it does. At the end of each chapter, curious young scientists are invited to explore their own human senses through fun guided experiments.
