I love having this lying around the coffee table so I can grab it and take a peek every once in a while, like a real life Instagram feed.
Meerkat babies are given dead scorpions to play with. Below is a picture of a sad meerkat and he's saying "no one looks at my wish list".
Koi fish can live 200 years. (Seems like a good deal right? Nope!) Below that is a sad koi fish saying "72,500 more days of exploring this decorative pond"
A chipmunk can't recognize it's face in a mirror. Below that is a suspicious looking chipmunk saying "I'd hate to be that guy"
Dik diks mark their territory with their tears. Below this is the saddest picture of a dik dik saying
"I'm fine. I just need a few minutes. Everything's fine."
I see now that without the pictures and out of context these sad facts don't seem so amusing but believe me they really are. Some of them are just ridiculous. There is even an appendix at the end of the book elaborating on some of these facts. It is explained why coot babies are pecked when they ask for food or that because crows never forget a face they sometimes use this skill to get their fellow crows to help attack people that they don't like.
I feel like my review is not doing this book justice and the more I write the more I take away from its wonderfulness so I'm going to just stop. YOU NEED TO READ THIS BOOK! ITS AWESOME!!!
