Animals have incredible, hidden abilities that defy our imagination. In Great Adaptations: Star Nosed Moles, Electric Eels, and Other Tales of Evolution’s Mysteries Solved, Kenneth Catania presents some of nature’s most remarkable creatures. Telling the story of his biological detective work, Catania explores how the deceptive hunting strategy of tentacled snakes leads prey straight to their mouths, how eels use electricity to control other animals, and why emerald jewel wasps make zombies out of cockroaches. Catania is the Stevenson Professor of Biological Sciences at Vanderbilt University. Purchase the book from the Museum Shop.
