Some of the most exciting things about animals are their intriguing behaviours. Ants trailing behind each other, kingfishers diving to catch fish, lizards dropping their tails, cuckoos chasing crows, octopuses changing their colour and shape, spiders building webs, even people on the train holding their nose as it goes past a sugar factory… all these are examples of the fascinating things animals do to find food, avoid anything that is noxious, escape predators, attract mates, or rear their young.
