Animals 'make friends' just like us, scientist finds

Press/Media: Research

Description

A scientist in Scotland has discovered that animals operate in groups of friends, just like humans.

Dr David Lusseau from the University of Aberdeen has spent ten years studying the behaviour of animals.

He says that just as humans use online networks like Facebook and Twitter, animals get together in groups to share information.

And who knows, perhaps just like us, they sometimes gossip about each other too!
