Animal self-medication – can bees do it?
Animal self-medication is one of the themes of Cindy Engel’s book ‘Wild Health’. If they are allowed to roam freely animals seem to know where to find what they need and will sometimes walk hundreds of miles to find it. This is a fascinating and well-researched book that investigates a subject that might help us understand the animal ‘instinct’ better. It has an easy style that captivates the reader from start to finish. Highly recommended.
Unfortunately as of August 2011 the book is unavailable on Amazon – sorry
