    MEET THE COMPETITORS

    The Capybara

    The ultimate friend among animals; particularly sophisticated emotionally, they love to snuggle with other species and should never be left alone.

    Image

    The Dog

    Known for their sensitivity, emotional ties and loyalty. We humans that live with them are their pack to protect and to love. Can read human emotions, as well as comfort the afflicted. Highly empathic animal. 

    Image

    The Gorilla

    These gentle giants share 98.3% of their genetic code with Humans—our cousins in the wild. They play with their children like we do and even laugh out loud.

    Image

    The Chimpanzee

    They have learned the rules of politeness, how to  engage in helpful behaviors, they laugh when tickled, share their food and show joy, fear and empathy. Their group behavior is regulated by punishing bad behavior and rewarding the good.

    The Elephant

    Very empathetic animal; they mourn their dead, look out for babies in the herd and try to help their friends in distress.

    Image

    The Donkey

    Surprisingly affectionate and form very close ties. They show joy and emotion when they recognize people and animals they’ve not seen for years and they mourn the loss of those close to them.

    Image

    The Cat

    They cuddle up on laps, rub their heads on those they love and vocalize their affection. Another way to show affection is when cats knead with their front paws. Cats have also been known to express grief at the death of a beloved owner.

    Image

    The Cow

    Affectionate gentle animals, emotional, and intelligent. Mahatma Gandhi described a cow as “a poem of compassion.” They have best friends, and even from grooming partnerships where they can do each other’s hair, and of course they intensely grieve the loss of their calves and will cry for days and search for them.

    Image

    The Raven

    They will sit right up close, touching another flock member that has been attacked, and preen, beak-to-beak or beak-to-body touch them to console them afterwards.

    Image

    The Meerkat

    The dominant meerkat, foregoes food for long periods standing guard as the lookout while the others forage. An upright meerkat is a wonderful sight! They can tell the identity of other individuals from their calls and can warn the others of impending danger in a single urgent bark.

    Image

    The Dolphin

    They routinely show love for species not their own. They’ve been known to rescue swimmers from sharks and have guided stranded whales back to sea. They are the most emotionally intelligent of animals.

    Image

    The Langur Monkey

    They care great care of their offsprings. In the wild when surrounded by more animals, they will alarm call to alert unrelated individuals or even other species if they know a predator is close by.

    Image

    The Rat

    They are smart, friendly, and like to cuddle, making them great companions for families and kids. A study shows they prefer helping others in need, rather than eating available treats.

    Image

    The Humpback Whale

    The gentle giants of the world, despite their size. Unlike many animals, they are very aware and considerate, often saving other species under attack. Their songs are fascinating, it is a new song each year.

    Image

    The Raccoon

    They look out for each other as one watches for danger while group foragers, and they share food with each other. They are extremely smart and resourceful.

    Image

    The Orca Whale

    They're our oceanic counterpart; very social and emotional with powerful empathy for each other and for humans. Well known is that they mourn their dead. When a member of their group is killed, they stay to help wounded companions.
