How smart are animals? Traditionally, we’ve answered that question by comparing them to us. But recently scientists have begun to Think Like an Animal. In this entertaining, thought-provoking documentary, we explore exciting new research and dispel old myths about how animals really think. From the foothills of the Canadian Rockies to a nature reserve in South Africa, Think Like an Animal features cutting edge researchers and the fascinating creatures they’re studying - animals that possess more complex cognitive skills and emotional depth than we humans once assumed.
