Animal Odd Couples

Are animals capable of feeling emotions? PBS Nature shares evidence that humans are not the only ones on the planet who cares, loves, and empathizes. Meet five animal odd couples.
Document Actions

Who can resist a story of despite-all-odds love? PBS’ Nature will drop your jaw and melt your heart with tales and footage of a goat guiding a blind horse; a doe who regularly visits her Great Dane surrogate mother; a juvenile gibbon choosing to live with a family of capuchins, and more odd couples. Its investigators, along with noted animal behavior experts Temple Grandin and Marc Bekoff, explore why animals are able to form these special bonds.
