Rate this:
"Why do giraffes have such long necks? Why are zebras striped? And why does the clitoris of the female hyena exactly resemble and in most respects function like the male's penis? [In this book], complex natural phenomena are explained in simple and at times comic terms, as Grasset turns evolutionary biology to the burning questions of the [African] animal kingdom, from why elephants prefer dictators and buffaloes democracies, to whether the lion really is king"
