What a Fish Knows: The Inner Lives of Our Underwater Cousins
October 6, 2016
Do fishes think? Do they really have three-second memories? And can they recognize the humans who peer back at them from above the surface of the water? Myth-busting animal behavior expert Jonathan Balcombe addresses these questions and more, taking us under the sea, through streams and estuaries, and to the other side of the aquarium glass to reveal the surprising capabilities of fishes.
Note: A book signing will follow.
