Scientists have long been thought that animals were not able to have emotions. They would be robots, biological machines driven by impulses, instincts and hormones. Since then, the opinion about animals changed. But feelings and emotions have always been so difficult to study that scientists have not even tried it long time. Thanks to recent advances in neuroscience we have the means to understand what is happening in the animal brain. We have found that animals, like us, emotions such as fear, anger, sadness and love can have. Animals need to survive these emotions. This documentary explores the inner life of a whole range of animal species, from primary to more complicated emotions.
