Interesting documentary on how we look at our animals actions, feelings and behavior. My favorite was the example of the mouse opening the case for the other mouse to get out and succeeded with his cleverness. and Also, the chimpanzee who opened the case to her friend's chimpanzee and share the food with. Amazing example of the ability of animals to help, to share food and have compassion to one another.

Originally broadcast on November 7, 2012 as an episode of the PBS television series: "Nova science NOW", this 54-minute documentary shows what's going on inside your pet's mind.
Do animals know right from wrong?
Do they have empathy?
How do homing pigeons find their way back to their lofts?
Is intelligence meant only for humans?
It is an amazing and amusing flick that you would love to watch.

Thoroughly enjoyed the series.

Really interesting look at how we interpret an animal's actions, as opposed to a glimpse into what they might truly be thinking. Perfect level for children of all ages.

Part of the NOVA Science Now series, this looks at the thought processes, capacity for empathy, and other aspects of various animals. The host brings a sense of humor to the proceedings, which is quite welcome.
