Penguin feelings

The images filmed by the BBC cameras for making the reports “Penguins – Spy in the Huddle” show some aspects of the ethology of these animals so little studied.

Do penguins mourning feeling? Or is it just a state of human consciousness itself?

Decades ago it was shown that certain animals, such as elephants (Loxodonta sp), showed a behavior to the death of members. . Not only is the act of recognizing the death of someone close, but the feeling of mourning and reverence for the remains of one day who were parents, children or couples.

Anthropocentrism?? Ignorance? Science still has many issues to address in a thorough and multidisciplinary study to find the emotional and ethological nature of different species, which affects all aspects of the lifetime of organisms.
