Is this assigning human emotions to a wild animal? Or did this monkey loose it's sh when it saw it's offspring collapse. It seems like the more we study animals the more we see they are not just "dumb" as they seem.


A monkey appeared to cry out in worry after her son collapsed.

However, her stress was unwarranted; the baby monkey had just tripped over and was soon back up on its feet.

The mother was photographed in Jabalphur, India, by 31-year-old Avinash Lodhi.

The photographer has never seen anything like this in her career.

So the son was Ok?

Just another helicopter mom. I bet she spit on a leaf and tried to clean his face off.

"Mah baby!!!!!"

Humans are animals, mammals to be specific, and are not alone in the way we experience emotions!

Years ago I saw a documentary about a clan of chimpanzees. One mother's child died very young. She continued to carry the child around, attempted to feed it. The other chimps just gave her her space. Eventually she accepted the reality and wailed. It was heartbreaking.

I've also heard that when African elephants travel past the remains of a former member, each member of the clan will stop and physically touch the bones, one by one, as they pass. Quite remarkable.

Lastly, I don't care what scientists say, my dog has definite emotions.

Dog owners, 'Pet people' agree with that.

Some own a family pet like they own a piece of furniture. Treat it that way and it becomes the furniture.

Treat them with kindness, love and respect and they return that too. Its not people vs. animal emotions, the feelings of love, play and contentment are universal, we just have different ways of showing it.

Elephants communicate with low rumbling sounds that go through the ground and air. I'd imagine their bones resonate at these frequencies as well, so that they could pick up the vibrations. Picking up those bones would probably let them feel the vibration through their trunks. Maybe they could even identify someone from the resonant frequency of those bones.

A pair of seagulls once raised a chick right below my apartment window. Very demanding, they had to feed that chick every six hours. Once time, the mother kept being pestered by junior for food, but she didn't have any so she kept turning her back on him. Next day she flew away early to find food and then came back at lunchtime. I remember hearing the equivalent of a seagull mothers scream. Junior had gone off looking for food by himself. She then had to go flying around the whole area to find him. Not far away, just about 150 meters at the railway station.

anyone who spends any time with a variety of animals should notice that they have a wide range of emotions. Anyone who is surprised about this doesn't spend enough time paying attention to them. I have never spoken to a Biologist who thinks that mammals do not have emotions. This isn't really a new thing.

That's what I was thinking. I think animals certainly have emotions and bonds similar to the ones we have. I know my dog whines and cries and licks my 2 year olds face and won't leave him alone when hes upset. I let go of his hand at the park and he tripped over his shoes and went face first into the mulch. I involuntarily screamed and felt like a goof because he was fine. Seems pretty normal as a mother to me lol.

I think scientists are pretty much agreed that dogs have extremely high emotional intelligence.

Dogs are amazing animals. They are smart and can "see" our moods.
