Insects, birds and mammals carry out most of their behavior in a
predetermined, instinctive way. But where do their mysterious,
complicated behavioral patterns come from?
Extraordinary Animal Behavior, a book by two young
scholars, Istvan Tasi and Balazs Hornyanszky, published by Torchlight,
received the prestigious award for Best Scientfic Book in 2009 from
Presenting dozens of behavioral examples, and adapting the book`s
basic idea to the screen with compelling visuals and footage of animals
in the wild, Nature`s I.Q. the documentary intends to entice the audience to question what they thought, and were taught, to be unshakeable truth.
Meet the deceptive hunters, the cunning bluffers, the unlikely partners,
the champions of timing, and the remarkable wanderers of the sky, and
be prepared to witness that nature can be more unfathomable than
contemporary science allows for.
