Brain size matters when it comes to animal self-control | animals and prosocial capacities | Scoop.it
(Phys.org) —Chimpanzees may throw tantrums like toddlers, but their total brain size suggests they have more self-control than, say, a gerbil or fox squirrel, according to a new study of 36 species of mammals and birds ranging from orangutans to zebra finches.

Crows understand water displacement at the level of a small child: Show causal understanding of a 5- to 7-year-old child

Crows understand water displacement at the level of a small child: Show causal understanding of a 5- to 7-year-old child | animals and prosocial capacities | Scoop.it
New Caledonian crows may understand how to displace water to receive a reward, with the causal understanding level of a 5- to 7-year-old child. Understanding causal relationships between actions is a key feature of human cognition. However, the extent to which non-human animals are capable of understanding causal relationships is not well understood. Scientists used the Aesop's fable riddle -- in which subjects drop stones into water to raise the water level and obtain an out-of reach-reward -- to assess New Caledonian crows' causal understanding of water displacement.

Male monkey cares for dying partner

Male monkey cares for dying partner | animals and prosocial capacities | Scoop.it

"A wild male marmoset has been seen and filmed embracing and caring for his dying partner.

The female accidentally fell from a tree in the forests of Brazil and the male comforted her as she lay dying.

Such behaviour is "astounding", say scientists, having only been previously recorded in primates among chimpanzees and humans.

The marmosets were the dominant pair in their group, having been committed partners for three-and-a-half years.

Within months of the female's death, the male left the group, never to return.

Details of the extraordinary interaction are published in the journalPrimates, along with a video recording the behaviour."
