World’s Sneakiest Animals
Chris Packham features a host of animals that use deceptive tactics to find food. Some trick their prey, like the manipulative mantis which looks like a flower and killer whales which set traps using sound. Others cheat each other – sea otters demand ransoms after kidnapping each other’s pups – and some, like African bird the drongo and monkeys, fool other species. In parks, meanwhile, grey squirrels are at war in stealing raids and it seems these animal liars, cheats and hustlers really will stop at nothing to get a meal.
