Just a reminder that I also write elsewhere on the internet. In particular, you can regularly find me at BBC Future and at Conservation Magazine. Here are a few links to recent pieces that readers of this blog might find interesting.
At BBC Future, a three-part series on mind-reading:
In the December issue, Play Nice. How do the play antics of orphaned chimps differ from those reared by their mothers?
In the January issue, Making Dolfriends. False killer whales (which are actually dolphins) and bottlenose dolphins form social relationships that can last for years. A fascinating tale of interspecies friendship.
