About Dr Karl


The Paradoxial Panda

Popcorn and Popstars

Up Close and Personal

This section of the book explains the interesting digestion system of the panda which, despite having a diet 99% composed of bamboo, it has the stomach of a meat eater. This is why the panda has to eat so much because the digestion system it has is incapable of getting all of the energy and protiens from the bamboo.

This explains how a popstar claimed to have lived on pocorn for two weeks and the science behind the lie. It tells you how doing so is physically impossible through a serious of interseting facts that will blow you mind.

This section of the book is SUPER COOL as it gives a microscopic object visible to us through a series of images. I really enjoyed trying to guess what I was seeeing and then finding out it was something completly out of the ordinary.

I like the Book!
