    Question Do animals fall in love?...

    Do animals fall in love?... We know animals mate, form emotional bonds and co-parent. But determining whether they feel intangible emotions is much more difficult.

    If love is life’s greatest mystery, then perhaps its second-greatest mystery is whether humans are alone in experiencing it. We talk about lovebirds and puppy love, but biologists are cautioned against anthropomorphizing their animal subjects and assigning human traits and meaning where they don’t belong. Instead, scientists scan brains, measure hormone production and conduct “speed dating for pandas,” all of which could help answer the question, “Do animals fall in love?” And if so, how, and why?
