Desmond Morris (born January 24th, 1928) is most famous for his work as a zoologist. He first came to attention in the 1960s as a presenter of ITV television's Zoo Time. His studies focus on animal and human behaviour, explained from a zoological point of view. He has written a number of books and produced a number of television shows. His examination of humans from a bluntly zoological point of view has attracted controversy.
The Naked Ape (1967) - an unabashed look at the human species. The book is notable for its focus on humanity's animal-like qualities and our similarity with apes. Reprinted many times and in many languages, it continues to be a best-seller.
The Human Zoo (1969) - a further, deeper look into mankind and his animal roots.
