The animal world is full of mysteries. Why do dogs slurp from their drinking bowls while cats lap up water with a delicate flick of the tongue? How does a tiny turtle hatching from Florida circle the entire northern Atlantic before returning to the very beach where it hatched? And how can a Komodo dragon kill a water buffalo with a bite only as strong as a domestic cat's?

These puzzles - and many more besides - are explained by physics. From heat and light to electricity and magnetism, Furry Logic unveils the ways that more than 30 animals exploit physics to eat, drink, mate and dodge death in their daily battle for survival.

Presenting mind-bending physics principles in a simple and engaging way, Furry Logic will appeal to both animal lovers and to those curious to see how physics crops up in the natural world. It's more of a "howdunit" than a whodunit, though you're unlikely to guess some of the answers.
