INSIDE ANIMAL HEARTS AND MINDS Bears That Count, Goats That Surf, and Other True Stories of Animal Intelligence and Emotion

by | Read by Hayden Panettiere

Contemporary Culture • 4.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2017

Narrator Hayden Panettiere enthusiastically delivers these true stories about intelligence and behavior in diverse animals. As listeners meet crows, rats, monkeys, and more, they learn how scientists are changing long-held views about intelligence and emotions in animals. In an experiment, primatologist Frans de Waal outraged a capuchin monkey by giving it a piece of cucumber rather than the treat of a grape--which the animal had just seen other monkeys receive. Berlin Zoo visitors observe the ten-year friendship of a black bear and a domestic black cat. Panettiere further animates her subjects by revealing that contented bears hum, chimps in the wild use sticks as dolls, and rats laugh when tickled. Her earnest delivery of this enchanting listen highlights Recio's goal to use knowledge to improve animals' lives. S.G.B. © AudioFile 2022, Portland, Maine [Published: MARCH 2022]
