Long-standing theories about how animals think are being overturned. Instead of simplistic attempts to rank animals through IQ, zoologists are exploring the animal mind on a much broader scale using cutting-edge technology and experimentation. Ingenious tests reveal both the similarities to—and differences from—the human mind. What are the limits of dolphins extraordinary powers of empathy? Why do elephants mourn their dead? And how can scrub jays have memories that manage to recall the individual position of 35,000 buried seeds? From the dog’s ability to know when its owner will return to the cleverest birds in the world and the manipulative power of dolphins, this series reveals the surprising and fascinating ways in which animals understand the world around them. Each program explores a separate psychological question, building up an unprecedented picture of the mind of the animal. How do they understand the world around them? How do they solve problems? And how do they interact socially? A BBC/NOVA co-production.
