Imagine being able to consume 250,000 calories daily without gaining weight. If you had the metabolism of a shrew you could. And while most of us can't hold our breath for more than a few minutes, the Weddell seal can remain under water for a full 75 minutes!Through many amazing examples, Why Geese Don't Get Obese discusses the mechanisms humans and other creatures have evolved to gauge their need for food; gather water and oxygen; circulate blood; regulate body temperature; respond to stressful situations; and maintain other survival needs.Peppy prose and just the right amount of detail make this audiobook a delight and a fitting ode to the remarkable resilience of nature!
