Animalades

Animalades

Animalades is a bestial journey from myth to science in which Catalonia’s wildlife stories are revealed; from legends and lunatic conceptions to recent scientific discoveries. Moreover, some animals’ abilities are compared with that of humans: a dolphin vs an Olympic swimmer, a frog vs a gymnast, a gecko vs a climber… Will we ever emulate their achievements? “Animalades” is a word pun: its root means “animal” and, in the Catalan language, “animalades” is used when something is unbelievable, crazy or exaggerated.

It’s a particularly tough place to be a blind baby monkey. Most blind babies die in a matter of weeks, however the extreme devotion of one macaque mother has an extraordinary result. The Blind Monkey provides an insight into macaque society and suggests that compassion may not be a uniquely human behavior.
