A book of striking animal portraits explores the magic of our bond with animals.

 

The Hungarian puli is an ancient breed of sheepdog used to control livestock flock movement, their predatory behaviors having been modified through selective breeding to minimize their instinct to kill. The puli along with the very similar but much larger komondor would historically guard and herd livestock that was vulnerable to predators live wolves and bears. After detecting a predator, the pulic would alert the larger komodor who would then attack.

This tight-lipped bear lives at China’s Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. Boasting a captive population of 114 pandas, the base has begun moving some animals into a reintroduction program. Because female giant pandas are in heat for a mere 24 to 72 hours annually, Chengdu’s program is critical to the species' population of about 1,600 in the wild and captivity.
