What is the raven’s word for eagle? How does a wolf know when to give up on a chase? How do animals pass on information through time? Delve into these and other questions of animal intelligence by directly observing Yellowstone’s wildlife.
You’ll learn to decipher body language, behavior, and vocalizations for clues about intelligence. Watch how different species interact with each other and their environment. Explore how they learn and pass their knowledge to their offspring. And consider how this information applies to other species—including those you may know from home.
