Teaching and Learning (22) More files...
With autumn upon us kids are heading back to school - either in person or virtually - as we launch into a new season of teaching and learning. But how do animals learn? By watching. This gallery features images showing young animals observing their family members navigate the wild world. How does a polar bear cub learn how to catch ringed seals? By watching her mother hunt. How does a capuchin monkey know how to use a rock to break open a tasty nut? By sitting beside a wiser relative while they hammer the nuts open. But what if the baby is orphaned? Young animals in rehabilitation facilities must learn life skills from their human attendants. Lessons in dust bathing, climbing, tool use and foraging are taught before the animals can be released into the wild.
