Have you ever wondered what animals are thinking? When you observe an elephant on safari do you ever imagine that it knows you are admiring its beauty and grandeur? Is it possible for an elephant to have pride? How about your dog…can he reciprocate emotions like love? Does he really feel guilty when he misbehaves?
When we heard the following account about a humpback whale and the people who helped free her from a potentially deadly tangle of crab traps, we knew we had to share it. Is it possible that this sea-dwelling giant showed signs of gratitude? Can non-human species possess such a human emotion?
