Animals feel pain just like us humans do: A colony of Langurs in Rajasthan grieve over a robotic baby Langur thinking its dead


Here’s something that will make your day a little sad but in a good way. How often do you see animals expressing an emotion that’s so rare in their world because with them, it’s kind of hard to tell. The emotion here is called pain. Everybody feels pain. But when it comes to animals, seeing them in a state of total despair is heart wrenching (especially when that emotion is triggered with physical pain).


But today we’re here to talk about a different kind of agony – an emotional one. A colony of monkeys in Rajasthan was recently filmed by BBC for one of their programmes ‘Spy in the wild’ and its preview is enough to make animal lovers like us reach for our tissues. The team at BBC setup a motionless artificial spy baby Langur on a tree to study their behaviour and one of the real Langurs accidentally drops it to the ground. What happens next, comes as a shocker to all of us when the entire colony of Langurs start grieving the ‘death’ of this baby robot expressing emotions just like us humans do. Here’s the video that shows that animals empathise exactly like us humans do. Take a look
