How to Walk on Water and Climb Up Walls 

Insects walk on water, snakes slither and fish swim. Animals move with astounding grace, speed and versatility, but how do they do it and what can we learn from them? From the incredible efficiency of the wet dog shake to colonies of ants building rafts out of their own bodies, author Dr. David Hu examines how animals have adapted and evolved to traverse their environments, taking advantage of physical laws with results that are startling and ingenious.
