Summary

Summary

Animals communicate in many different ways. Some animals use visual cues, such as showing a brightly colored throat sac or changing color, to get their message across. Others may use sounds, such as growls or barks, to communicate. Animals may even use scent or touch to tell other creatures to go away or stay out of their territory. This book explores these behaviors and more. Book jacket.
