Articles by Linda Lombardi
Linda Lombardi specializes in writing about the animals that share our planet and our homes. Her Animals Behaving Badly: Boozing Bees, Cheating Chimps, Dogs with Guns and Other Beastly True Tales, probably the only book with 25 pages of bibliography that you'll find shelved under Humor, uses evidence from science and the news to show that animals aren't always as cute as they'd like you to believe. Her forthcoming The Pit Bull Life, co-authored with Deirdre Franklin, helps owners appreciate and advocate for this misunderstood dog with information from history, the law and the science of dog behavior. She has worked as a zookeeper with small mammals, reptiles, and amphibians, including a breeding colony of the critically endangered Panamanian Golden Frog.
