FREE READ ´ Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes And coyote has an inherent tendency to favor either its aggressive nature or to shyly avoid conflicts Some bluebirds are lovers others are fighters And some spiders prefer to be loners while others are socia. This is an interesting book whose main theme is that all organism s behavior is individualistic and that it is wrong and illogical to think of these entities in a single minded way A good read that stretches the mind

FREE READ ´ Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes Ble Uniue personalities can be discovered in every corner of the animal kingdom even among microscopic organisms The array of personality types among all species is only beginning to be described and understo. Although I love the idea of a book that scientifically shows that animals have personalities I didn t find it here Some of the stories shared by John Shivik were interesting and some did show that animals have distinct personalities similar to people Still most of what was in this book was what any pet owner would already know I will admit I had never thought about spider or salamander personalities but am still not impressed There needed to be science Maybe that was the problem the author tried to combine science humor and animal traits in one book and therefore fell short

FREE READ ´ Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes In Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes Shivik serves as an accessible humorous guide to the emerging body of research on animal personalities Shivik accompanies researchers who are discovering that each wolf bear. Two things disappointed me about this book Firstly which of us doesn t believe that animals have different personalities We all know that our pets cats dogs horses and chickens I was going to say even chickens but it should be especially chickens hens are very individual creatures have their own uniue personalities so I don t need convincing in a book full of anecdotesAnd that is the second point too many anecdotes not enough science I like a steak underneath the sauceWhat did bring the book from an average 3 star to a 4 star was the evolutionary reason for different personalities which might be obvious to a lot of people but I hadn t thought of it It is easy to see how true it is of people so obviously of animals tooPhysical adaptions to the environment which is what we all understand about evolution take a very long time As the book puts it bodies transmogrify slowly than glaciers advance and recede But behaviour allows each individual to adapt to the conditions it finds itself in Because the environment varies so much even in one location weather food enemies disease etc a variety of personalities means that some at least are likely to adapt their behaviour and not just survive but learn from their environment and do well In yesterday s Daily Rag aka the scurrilous Daily Mail was a story of a gorilla in a zoo who had made shoes or at least foot coverings so he didn t get his feet wet The other gorillas hadn t thought of that But some person far back in the human chain did too or maybe we got it from gorillasSo because of that insight and I love non fiction for those ah ha moments it gets 4 stars but I wouldn t really recommend it

    John Shivik Å 1 FREE READ Mousy Cats and Sheepish Coyotes (NEW) At least one review for this book asserted that it may be too academic for some people's tastes I disagree For me this book's highest moments were those all too brief instances in which Shivik stopped tossing out inane anecdotes thinly veiled insults towards the shackled scientists who disagree with his views and prose so pointlessly purple
