Summary The question of animal intelligence has been debated for centuries. In recent years, science has come closer to proving that animals think and feel-perhaps not at the level of humans, but in ways that are nevertheless authentic. This classic program brings viewers into the midst of eye-opening zoological, neurological, and psychological research, revealing what many scientists believe to be cognitive abilities in animals. These include communication, creativity, cooperation, deception, and even self-awareness. The result is an exciting teaching tool that challenges traditionally held beliefs about animal minds
