Riding with the dolphins: The equinox guide to dolphins and porpoises.
THE WORLD OF DOLPHINS AND PORPOISES.
Humans have been fascinated by dolphins and porpoises for thousands of years. Drawn by their intelligence and good nature, the citizens of ancient civilizations honoured dolphins as gods. Stories abound of their strength and dexterity in the water and of their affectionate and playful relationships with people.
But what is the truth about these appealing creatures? In Riding With the Dolphins, author Erich Hoyt brings us up to date on the latest dolphin research, answering and asking questions about the future of their threatened habitat, their social lives, their innovative feeding behaviours and their ability to learn from and communicate with humans. Beautifully illustrated with drawings and photographs, Riding With the Dolphins is a captivating guide to these mammals of the sea.
