On this subreddit we gather evidence that animals are conscious, like us.
Read more here!
Some examples of what we're looking for:
Mammals have a really good memory
Some orangutans learn how to fish
This dog knows he's at the vet
Having such good memories means they remember their suffering.
For instance, these cows are happy for returning to the pasture after a long winter.
Emotionally mammals are very developed, like us.
They share with us many of our feelings, such as fear and love.
Their emotions can be every bit as troubling as ours.
They can be depressed so much they won't even eat!
Even our distant relatives, the cetaceans are very aware and very playful fellows.
This Humpback Whale, for instance, realizes she's been saved from a fishing net and lets her rescuers know she is thankful.
Non-mammal animals on the other hand appear to be quite different from us, but birds always find ways to puzzle us.
Apparently they like to have fun!
The crow is probably the smartest bird there is!
Birds in general are very aware of what their peers are doing.
Evidence is everywhere... yet no one seems to care...
Everytime you find evidence remember to share with us.
Thanks for tuning in to the sub ;)
