If the babies don’t do as they are told, the parents smack them on their hands. If the young chimps don’t listen, then mummy chimp growls at them. Animal alphabet Did you know that fish can communicate? If you observe fish in a fish tank, you’ll see some very interesting behavior, when fish are hungry they use their tails to throw stones against the fish tank. If they throw a lot of stones, it means they are very hungry! Birds sing to communicate. Each bird species uses a different song, which other birds don’t understand. This means that pigeons don’t understand sparrows, and ducks don’t understand swans. Friends for life All animals live in a group. The group protects each of its members. If one of the members of the group sees danger on the horizon, it warns the others by sending a signal. Some animal species have got a different warning signal for different dangers. Experts say that when animals behave like this, it means that they are altruistic, this means that they think and care about their group and not just about themselves. EXAMPLE ANSWER 0.
