Mind-blowing Animals Compared To Average Humans

The Works of Bernard Leo Remakus, M.D

What If Humans Were Like Animals?:

page 22

The Amazing and Disgusting Life You’d Lead as a Snake, Bird, Fish, or Worm! By Marianne Taylor & Lauren Taylor Reader’s Digest, 144 pages, $9.99 What if Humans Were Like Animals? carries readers away with interesting, creepy, and gross facts about what it would be like to be some odd animal. For instance, how would you like to eat your way out of your mom’s stomach? Or, how would you like to be a babirusa pig with upper teeth growing up and out of your skin? And, yet another example, how would you like to grow more legs the older you got? I don’t know where she found all these wacky facts but these mindblowing, nearly impossible to believe, and mostly creepy facts take the readers to new places and leaves them begging for more by the time they turn the last page.
