Description
Did you know that bats compose their own songs? That mice actually giggle when tickled, and rats can laugh? That porpoises go to sleep in only one half of their brains at a time? That lizards do push-ups to seduce a mate? Or that elephants hear low frequencies through their feet? Confirming what pet owners and animal lovers have long suspected—and research science is now finally beginning to understand—many of the more complex traits that we have held as "human" are shared and even surpassed by wild creatures. In this eye-opening account, neuropsychologist Karen Shanor (an advisor for the Discovery Channel's Animal Planet programs) and neuroethologist Jagmeet Kanwal (who studies brain activity in animals as they communicate) together explain how animals build, create, and entertain themselves; how they express grief, joy, anger, and fear; how animal "friends" keep in touch; and how some animals solve problems even more effectively than humans.
