AMNH Presents | Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History

Eating one’s own kind is a natural behavior found in thousands of species, including humans. In his new book, Cannibalism: A Perfectly Natural History, Museum Research Associate Bill Schutt explains new research about this widespread behavior, such as how the practice might be linked to the extinction of Neanderthals, why so many fish eat their young, and even when sexual cannibalism can be an evolutionary advantage.

Note: Award-winning artist Patricia J. Wynne will discuss her scientific illustrations featured in the book. A book signing will follow.
