About this book

Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behaviour, with crocodiles, for example, emerging as devoted parents, and elephants - like whales - able to communicate with each other across long distances by ultrasound, which is inaudible to our ears. There seems little doubt that animals experience a range of emotions, just as we do; but can they grieve too? Evidence exists that, indeed, they can: in addition, David Alderton contends that emotions - including grief - can potentially have a survival value for a species. The authoritative text is supported by sensitively chosen photographs.
