Synopsis:

We all know that dolphins are considered very smart. But why is this? It is the size of their brains? Is it what they eat? Is it due to their environment? Author Pamela S. Turner takes us to Australia to follow dolphins in the wild so we can figure out just what makes dolphins tick in the newest book in the critically acclaimedand#160;Scientists in the Field series.

Synopsis:

Ride alongside the author Pamela S. Turner and her scientific team and meet a cast of dolphin characters large enough (and charismatic enough) to rival a Shakespearean playand#8212;Puck, Piccolo, Flute, and Dodger among them. You will fall in love with this crew, both human and finned, as they seek to answer the question: just why are dolphins so smart? And what does their behavior tell us about human intelligence, captive animals, and the future of the ocean? Beautiful photos of dolphins in their natural habitat and a funny, friendly, and fast-paced text make this another winner in theand#160;Scientists in the Fieldand#160;series.
