A brave deer and a shy octopus


My favorite loop runs on varied terrain. It follows small trails, lush creek streams and swampy depressions. At times I ache on the sparsely wooded cliffs and walk for a moment in the bright pine forest.

Sometimes right from the solid forest to the edge of the field to say hello. White-tailed deer are in a familiar place, as always at this time of fall. The mother and her two vases are eating in the fallow field in complete peace – or so it seems.

One of the calves is scared. It is revealed by a transom. A long tail waves back and forth and the animal flashes restlessly around it. Sibling and mother are from another country. They could not be less interested. The tails are sloping down and reflecting quietly. Everything is fine. Eating is allowed to continue.

Human personalities are taken for granted, but similar differences in character occur in nature. Some animals are scarcer, others bolder. The differences are innate, part of the inherited temperament, but they are also influenced by experience

The restless vasa belongs to the sensitive clan. It is vigilant when it sees a person and certainly does not take unnecessary risks in life. From the other vasa grows probably a mother-like filth, actively exploring new environments.Science reveals more and more human-like features in animal behavior. Personality differences have been found in almost all animals studied to date. Even invertebrates like bees have a distinct character.

Studies show that up to a third of animal behavior is explained by personality.

Animals have similar personality traits and emotional experiences as humans, but their intensity varies across species and individuals. Both humans and octopuses can be either shy or outward-looking. Where a person fights in a foreign company, the shy octopus stays hidden and only dares to enter the scene when it feels safe.

Are you shy or brave? Evolution has favored both. A brave animal finds more food than its fellow species and is able to reproduce more easily.

You shouldn’t be too daring. An extravagant risk taker is more likely to be a prey to prey.

Shyness can result in the salvation of a deer calf. During the hunt in the open field, you should be timid and suspect all bipeds.

Happy Late Autumn Science Nature Readers!
