Tales of Animal Intrigue, Intelligence & Ingenuity. Animal intelligence is the combination of skills and abilities that allow animals to live in and adapt to their specific environments. Animals possess the ability to adapt to their surroundings by learning to change their habits and behaviors. Many species are also capable of forming social groups. All of these characteristics are based on the animal’s capacity to process information . Here we share stories hof the emotional intelligence of animals, which hasn't been as explored as much as their intellects. Profoundly moving anecdotes, and greatly entertaining.
Noted environmentalist Eugene Linden offers wonderful true anecdotes about animal acts of cooperation, heroism, escape—even tales of deception or manipulation of human beings. Drawing on the first-person experiences of veterinarians, field biologists, researchers, and trainers, Linden has compiled a warmly entertaining and powerfully persuasive argument for animal consciousness that, while not human, far exceeds what humans usually grant animals.
