My Painting from a photo (unknown origin)
The data keep rolling in--animals are conscious beings, more like us than we have admitted. So how do we adjust our behavior to account for their sentience, their emotions, even their rights? Is falconry too demanding. I find it amazing that aquarium octopuses were not thought to be interested in interacting as persons with us humans until the year 2000. Both books are easy, fascinating reads.
