All mammals learn and grow through play.
Play crosses the boundaries of species, it is a universal language of mammals. Enjoy the video:
wow. unbelievable. Really cool Alex.
It is a great video.
GORGEOUS GORGEOUS GORGEOUS Beautiful! Oh, I love to see nature like that, I do, I do.
I am afraid of dogs BECAUSE of their unpredictability (that they suddenly growl & tear toddlers apart – such a case happened only last year in Australia), but I recognise that when nature is intuitive with nature, it is so stunningly beautiful. This was just beautiful – the bears too of course, so big, and holding the dog so trusting. Awesome.
Thanks for your comment. All animals need to be treated with respect for they are as you say unpredictable. It is a video I like to watch over and over again.
The divine play… 🙂
Yes indeed 🙂
Indeed, play IS universal.
This is how I see humans and animals co-existing; it is possible. If you think about the lion, Christian, that was raised by humans and even after release into the wild remembered his human caretaker and hugged him much the same as the polar bear embraced the husky. Animals have an incredible sense ability for enemy and ally or good and bad, they know when and whom to trust and with whom they can expose vulnerabilities. Animals have amazing minds and consciousness.
Animals always manage to amaze me. Thanks for your comment 🙂
I know I feel horrible about the animals in zoo’s. It may be a way to show our children the animals and learn from them. But i’d always secretly day dream about setting them all free. I can barely think to go into a pet-smart or place. I always want to just break the glasses and cages. Secretly in my mind anyways.
It is awful that animals are restricted behind walls and cages not being able to express their natures fully. Better in my opinion to be dead than unable to express my nature.
Right on! Thanks for the video.
You are welcome. Wish you a great 2013.
Enjoyed seeing the polar bears acting like dogs, it even looked like they were hugging each other! Thanks for this.m
There did seem to be some bonding going on between polar bear and dog.
It is fascinating yet it is simple. Animals can follow rules and break them. I wonder though, do they have other thoughts and feelings like humans too? For example jealousy or envy even? Thanks I enjoyed that video!
I suspect that all mammals have similar emotions as humans. As an example if a parent gives attention to a new baby, the pet dog forgotten, it through jealousy could attack the baby; I have read of a few examples of that happening.
Wow, very interesting!
Peace & Light
It is educational to see 🙂
