Animals In Love
Do penguins fall in love? How do capuchin monkeys flirt? Do hyenas get first date jitters? Presenter Liz Bonnin reveals the surprising similarities between the ways humans and animals pursue a mate and having found ‘the one’ how they go about maintaining a relationship. Discover how flamingos spruce themselves up to attract a mate, meet the alligators who woo the girl of their dreams with song and dance, and the bonobos who believe making each other laugh is one of the secrets of a successful relationship. Featuring interviews with top animal behaviourists, Animals in Love reveals the surprising science behind some of these unexpected similarities, offering a wholly fresh look at animal relationships.
