The fostering of social insects, made ​​a mistake exposed in Darwin's theory of evolution by natural selection: the biologist noted that non-reproductive insects that boy adopt and help a large portion of genetic baggage their parents give to this adopted son.

Crows of New Caledonia, for example, use twigs to remove insect larvae, sea otters use flat stones to break open zeeklitschelpen or ears; weefmieren leaves interwoven with threads that their larvae secrete. Until recently, it was thought that the tools of different people of the tools of animals because the latter are not transmitted or collected. Several long-term studies on animal populations have proved the contrary. Tools of animals can be a part of an animal culture. For example, some chimpanzee populations their own technical tradition: they break open nuts with stones. Based on these observations, this comprehensive documentary built around three central questions: how the tool using animal changes the world? And, by extension, the others? And how the tool changes the behavior of the animal?

Animal Tool Use Jul 2, 2014 As children we learn the most about life through play. The ability to play allows us to grow into well-ordered and highly social individuals who can adapt to different situations. But not only we, play animals. For a long time we considered the game of animals as different from the game of people. But now proven that there is no difference. Why animals have fun in game? What is the function of these energy consuming and often dangerous activities? This documentary investigates why play is so important for the development. By describing social and locomotor play and playing with objects in animals, reptiles and birds to mammals, its advantages are obvious. Finally, we get even more shocking evidence for the function of the game, by watching what happens in young animals that can not play. In a surprising parallel with humans, animals that can not take place in the play develop into dysfunctional adults, and even serial killers.

Animal Culture Jul 2, 2014 In the fifties rhesus monkeys began on the island Koshima in Japan, the sweet potatoes that researchers gave them to wash. This observation might as well have stayed anecdotal except that Japanese primatologists this renewal appointed as "preculture". Culture had always considered an exclusively human characteristic, and this assumption was questioned by the behavior of these monkeys. Research on the most evolved primates, our cousins ​​the chimpanzees and bonobos, has given us a more precise definition of "animal culture" yielded: the habits that animals acquire a learning process and lead to distinct traditions in different animal communities. Gradually, more and more animals member of the club culture: elephants, dolphins, orcas and even ravens. By precise examples and never-before-seen images, this documentary stirs the debate over "nature versus culture" and throw them a new light on the paradoxical question: "Culture is natural?"

Animal Politics Jul 2, 2014 Man is not the only social animal. In early 2001 Frans de Waal published his work on a group of chimpanzees in the zoo of Arnhem, in the Netherlands. He showed that detailed and subtle rites exist which betray a political organization according to him. This fueled the basis of a much loved argument in today's scientific world, that man is the only "political animal" would not be as defined by Aristotle. Schedules, coalitions and negotiation are all part of the behavior of chimpanzees. Long before man the political domain entered, nature had other species already equipped with an arsenal of political tricks, the most cunning of the most democratic: at amazon ant makes all slavery for centuries part of their society; baboons know the veto; and the deer of the island of Rum have a democracy. Biologists discovered that even in other species to find some characteristics of politicians, to ensure that they realize their ambitions and achieve their goals, are back. Dominance, the covenants, seduction and manipulation are forms of intelligence is no longer a monopoly of man alone. Through this ongoing discoveries about animals communities around the world crumble the boundaries between humans and animals.
