Description: While in the past scientists have refused to acknowledge that animals have anything like human intelligence, a growing body of research reveals otherwise. We've discovered ants that use leaves as tools to cross bodies of water, woodpecker finches that hold twigs in their beaks to dig for grubs, and bonobos apes that can use sticks to knock down fruit or pole-vault over water. Not only do animals use tools -- some also display an ability to learn and problem solve.

Based on the latest scientific and anecdotal evidence culled from animal experts in the labs and the field, "In Search of the Animal Mind" is an engrossing look at animal intelligence, cognitive ability, problem solving, and emotion. George Page, originator and host of the long-running PBS series "Nature", offers us an informed, entertaining, and humanistic investigation of the minds of predators and scavengers, birds and primates, rodents and other species. Illustrated with twenty-four black-and-white photographs, the book will be a companion to a three-part, hour-long show of the same name, hosted by Page.

In the bestselling tradition of The Hidden Life of Dogs, When Elephants Weep, and Dogs Don't Lie About Love, "In Search of the Animal Mind" is fascinating narrative explaining the nature and depth of animal intelligence.
