Release of ‘Do Tigers Drink Blood & 13 Other Mysteries of Nature’

Co-authored by Udaipur’s father-daughter naturalists duo Dr. Raza H. Tehsin and Arefa Tehsin, Do Tigers Drink Blood and 13 Other Mysteries of Nature (Publisher – Rupa & Co.) released recently.

Do crocodiles really cry? Why does the hare eat its own poop? Why does the sloth bear hug? Why do fireflies glow? Older children and adults are invited to collaborate with Raza and Arefa as wildlife detectives to find out what really happens out in the wild. This fun and informative book explains strange and wonderful facts from the world of nature, accompanied by detailed illustrations.

Raza Tehsin is the initiator of wildlife conservation movement in southern Rajasthan, Advisor to the govt. of Rajasthan on Wildlife for six years and the Hon. Wildlife Warden of Udaipur for more than three decades. He has helped form three wildlife sanctuaries, reported 14 new species from the region and has led many public spirited campaigns to save the wildlife and jungles around Udaipur.

Arefa’s other published books include Tales from the Wild (co-authored with Raza), The Land of the Setting Sun & Other Nature Tales (co-authored with Raza), The Elephant Bird (translated in six languages) and the rainforest based fantasy novel Iora & the Quest of Five. She’s currently the Honorary Wildlife Warden of Udaipur district, a columnist in The Hindu and Deccan Herald and writes articles/opinion pieces for various national dailies and magazines.

The Book Review, which reviewed the book recently, says, “The choice nuggets you pick up while reading this book will, besides increasing your knowledge about animals, give you enough ammunition for social situations that need you to start and carry on conversations. And of course, it goes without saying that you will never look at animals (the ones written about in this book) in the same way again.”
