Episode Info

"Inside the Animal Mind" concludes with speculation about the level of animal consciousness and self-awareness. "They think in pictures," says Prof. Temple Grandon of Colorado State University, referring to cattle. The hour also delves into the minds of birds, bees, bears and baboons, as well as chimps, sheep and elephants. Do they feel pain? Comprehend mortality? It's hard to say. "They live in a different world," says Stephen Buriansky, the author of "If Lions Could Talk." Steve Kroft narrates.
