this video has been in my head all day.. really affected me

No one has to convince me that animals have a deeper social world and more robust consciousness than is generally accepted, but i was still blown away by this video and i think it is quite remarkable.

basically the video shows a squirrel whose legs were hurt (by shopping cart), who calls for help from his friend.

it is animal positive but involves a squirrel who has been hurt, so while it's not at all graphic, it could conceivably disturb you a little if seeing an animal in pain is too much for you. but the whole thing is quite uplifting and worth it i think

For a minute there i thought the other squirrel was going to eat him. :D


I saw a clip on Bravo today,they have some sort of internet viral video show...
They had this clip of a two legged dog,but get this,both legs where on the right
side of the body,somehow he adapted,and adapted well,running,etc.

Wow, that's incredible.  I'm amazed at how effectively he carried the injured one, didn't slow him down much at all!

It's a fact, humans weren't the first to develop social structure and social interaction.  What really amazes me is the insect kingdom -- some of the most complex communities/social/political structures in nature aren't lower mammals, but insects.  Bees, especially.

For anyone living close to London, the first annual Pestival is happening soon:

http://pestival.org/index2.html

Quote
Through appreciation of “insects in art and the art of being an insect”, the Pestival aims to create positive PR for this 400-million-year-old, highly evolved taxon that has had thousands of years of bad press.

We are building up a fantastic programme of talks, demonstrations, workshops, art installations, films, music and performance, fusing art and science to reach out to a broad, interested audience of homo sapien adults and children.

There will be several fascinating talks, including one by a Forensic Entomologist on what maggots teach us about a crime scene. Sherlock Slimes and Dr. Antson anyone?
