Ethology is the scientific study of animal behaviour. Intelligence, cognition, sexual behaviour, personality, learning, sociality & all that cool stuff!
This is a baby #elephant blowing bubbles.
Well. That's different.
These baby Harris's #hawks aren't big on the sharing.
Imagine if some of the most famous #behavioural experiments had been conducted on a different #species...
The #cockatoos sense an impostor among their midst.
Someone's trained this #mouse. Think we could do the same with those indecisive #cats?
This #cat has spent too much time around show #horses.
There have been many #pandas rolling down many things. I like the nonchalance of this one.
Beware the so-called "cute" #animal pics.
Check out how two #cockatoos perform the same task! #ECBB
Check out this African #bullfrog digging a channel from a small water source so that the tadpoles don't dry out!

It's not just the domestic #cats doing it...
Everyone is talking about this #cat saving the boy from a #dog but can we understand its motivations?

Awesome pic of midflight #behaviour by Hendri Venter!
Some #behaviours are easier to interpret than others! Pic by drhiteshj.
