About this book

Language: German

Why does female dolphin Olin seek contact with a fisherman on a daily basis? How is Ayuma the chimp able to memorize a sequence of numbers faster than humans? Why is cockatiel Buddy grieving so badly after the death of his partner that he is unable to have another relationship that close?

For decades, Immanuel Birmelin has been studying the memory capacity and levels of emotions in animals – lions and tigers, chimpanzees, dogs and cats. The most important things all of them have in common are: Animals can make decisions, are capable of finding effective solutions to problems and live in a world of emotions just like ours.

An exciting journey into the world of wild animals and pets, which is going to astonish you and change the relationship you had with animals.

Summary in German:
Warum sucht Delfindame Olin freiwillig täglich den Kontakt zu einem Fischer, wie kann sich Schimpanse Ayuma schneller Zahlenabfolgen merken als wir Menschen und warum trauert Nymphensittich Budy so sehr um seine Partnerin, dass er mit keiner anderen mehr eine so enge Bindung eingeht?

Seit Jahrzehnten erforscht Immanuel Birmelin die Gedächtnisleistung und die Gefühlsebenen von Tieren, ob an Löwen und Tigern, an Schimpansen oder Hunden und Katzen. Dabei wird eines deutlich: Tiere können Entscheidungen treffen, sind fähig zu gezielten Problemlösungen und leben wie wir in einer Welt von Gefühlen.

Eine spannende Reise zu Wild- und Haustieren, die uns in Erstaunen versetzt und unser Verhältnis zu Tieren ändern wird.
