A cat looking out for birds, an elephant walking through the savannah, a chimpanzee staring into in a mirror—what might be going through their heads? Though animals cannot talk, recent studies show they demonstrate profound mental activity. Animals have cognitive abilities that enable them to adapt and adjust to their individual environments. It is only by trying to understand the intelligence unique to each species that we can ever truly love and respect the animals that surround us. An excellent synthesis of comparative psychology and ethology studies conducted in the last hundred years!
