Ants can teach each other, and rats love to be tickled. Dogs have thousand-word vocabularies, and birds practice their songs in their sleep. But how do scientists know these things? In this finalist for the LATimes Book Prize, Virginia Morell travels to field sites and laboratories around the world, introducing us to animal-cognition scientists and their surprisingly intelligent and sensitive subjects. As Morell explores how this rapidly evolving, controversial field is overturning the old notions about why animals behave as they do, she uncovers what we have in common with wolves, parrots, dolphins, elephants, and chimpanzees.
