From whiskers to flippers, what animal senses teach us about our world
Have you ever watched a cat skitter through some seemingly invisible obstacle course that happens to be in your living room and wondered: what is happening in their world? Or maybe you've questioned what your dog gets out of sniffing, well... everything! Pulitzer Prize winning science journalist Ed Yong sheds some light on those questions, and many more, in his new book An Immense World: How Animal Senses Reveal the Hidden Realms Around Us. He speaks with Piya Chattopadhyay about the surprising ways animals navigate the world, and what we can learn from their journey.
