Why does female dolphin Olin seek contact to a fisherman on a daily basis? How is Ayuma the chimp able to memorize a sequence of numbers faster than humans? Why is cockatiel Buddy grieving so badly after the death of his partner that he is unable to have another relationship that close? For decades, Immanuel Birmelin has been studying the memory capacity and levels of emotions in animals – lions and tigers, chimpanzees, dogs and cats. The most important things all of them have in common are: Animals can make decisions, are capable of finding effective solutions to problems and live in a world of emotions just like ours. An exciting journey into the world of wild animals and pets, which is going to astonish you and change the relationship you had with animals. For many years, ethologist Dr. Immanuel Birmelin has been studying the behavior of animals. In collaboration with scientific journalist Volker Arzt, he made successful documentaries such as “If Animals Could Talk”, “Who Is Smarter
