Science is now providing some remarkable insights into animal behavior, 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? David Alderton – award-winning, multi-million specialist animal author – contends that emotions – including grief – can potentially have a survival value for a species. The authoritative, rational text is superbly supported by interesting, sensitive photographs carefully chosen to be reflective of the subject matter. Unique subject matter, drawing on the latest research • Covers both domestic and wild animals • A subject that has intrigued pet owners for many years • Fascinating insights into the natural world • Insights into how grieving may help wild animals to survive • How this could affect conservation planning • Sensitive, rational approach to the subject • The impact on pet owners and their animals • Written by an award-winning, multi-million selling specialist animal author • A book with widespread appeal for anyone with an interest in the natural world
