The Medusa and the Snail
More Notes of A Biology WatcherDownloadable Audiobook - 1979
Lewis Thomas's fascinating observations of the quirkiness of the world's lifeforms cause the listener to ponder simultaneously a tiny organism and the workings of the cosmos. In one chapter he examines the medusa jellyfish and a sea slug, mutually parasitic and dependent on one another. Lewis says, "They remind me of the whole earth at once."
