Description

Calling all love birds - or cats, kangaroos, and boa constrictors! From the bestselling author of Unlikely Friendships, Unlikely Loves is an exploration of animal attachments that, in human terms, can only be called love. Take, for instance, the dog living in a wildlife sanctuary who treats an orphaned leopard cub as his little beloved sister. Or the dalmation who mothers an abandoned newborn lamb - a lamb who just happened to be covered in spots like her adopted mama. Or the story of the fox and the hound, who are as affectionate as brothers. Or even the black swan who becomes inseparable with a swan boat! Behind each of these unusual pairings is a beautiful love story. Interviewing scientists and zoologists around the world, Holland has tracked down firsthand sources and interviewed eyewitnesses to verify each of the stories, which are accompanied by beautiful - and sometimes truly unbelievable - photographs.
