It’s all about animals when you’re on a safari! They ARE amazing! I’ve come to appreciate them even more over the past few years as my students and I have researched and discussed evidence of intelligence and personality in animals.
Different species have different levels of thinking ability, but I’ve seen evidence of animals planning what they will do next, changing their voice or body movements to get another animal’s attention, communicating and working with other animals to reach a goal, even putting themselves in the way of a predator to save the life of another animal. All of these behaviors require THINKING. If you live with, or near, any animals I’m sure you have evidence as well. Feel free to add it to the comment section below.
My husband and I had hoped to see a few of the African animals we had always heard about when we set out on safari. We would have been satisfied if we had.
It was to our great surprise and delight when we saw HUNDREDS of them! We were also able to spend time observing their behaviors, while we took LOTS of photos.
