Daniel Blumstein in Daily Bruin: Book by UCLA faculty explores adolescence, development among various species

UCLA’s Natterson-Horowitz and science journalist Kathryn Bowers detailed the life of Shrink, a spotted hyena in Tanzania, and other animals in their book Wildhood, published last month. The book explores the key lessons and traits of adolescence commonly found in many different species, including humans.

“For young humans, it’s also a good time to explore and take risks, … learn your limits,” said Daniel Blumstein, a UCLA ecology and evolutionary biology professor who works with Natterson-Horowitz.
