"Each page of the book is devoted to one animal and one question:
'Does it fart?'.... But the book isn't just bathroom humor. Written
by a pair of wildlife biologists, Does It Fart? cleanly
explains the science of digestion and fascinating aspects of animal
behavior. (Did you know manatees hold on to their farts to remain
buoyant in the water?) In all, the book helps you appreciate the
diverse ways wildlife has evolved to deal with passing gas."--Vox,
