Does animals have emotions?

Does animals have emotions?

Living being have gone a process of natural selection for million of years, in which those with characteristics are the one that survives. So, is emotion vital for survival, apparently yes, specially with mammals and birds.

Mammal mothers let the young suckle on their body, the youngters in return feel a desire to bond and stay near them.

In the wild mammals that fail to bond with their mothers rarely survive for long. It is evident that love among mother -infant is required for all mammals.

Monkey love experiment

In 1950s and 1960s, Harry Harlow conducted an experiment on infant monkeys separated from their mothers after birth.

Is everything now solved?

Is everything now solved?

With that result we can say that mammals can't live with food alone. They have emotional needs to. Evolution imprinted them with the assumption that emotional needs are formed with soft furry things than with hard metallic objects. Alas, the cloth-mother never respond to their affection thus they grew up to be neurotic and asocial adults.

With these experiments done, animals have emotional needs should be addressed, but I don't see that happening with the billions of animals in dairy industries.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
