In the wild, nature is the pharmacy & every animal its own practitioner. Monkeys, bears & birds protect themselves from insect bites & fungal infections by rubbing medicinal plants & insects into their skin. Chimpanzees carefully select anti-parasitic medicines to deal with parasites. Elephants roam miles to find the clay they need to help counter dietary toxins. And birds help their chicks by lining their nests with aromatic leaves. This book explores the behavioral strategies that animals use to maintain health, many of which may be relevant to improved animal husbandry & human health care. An enthralling, well-referenced narrative. Illus.
