This is the first attempt to consider the concept of the wondrous in relation to the animal world in classical antiquity, the ways in which this is manifest in ancient thought and society and the effects of aspects of this tradition on subsequent ages, including the New World and later Antipodean discoveries.. In addition, it aims to present an overview of the subject comprehensible to both specialists and non-specialists in the classical field.
