    this will be a fun post where you can post any “high” questions you might have... people might answer them.

    My one today while panicking over assignments and banging my head then laying down, I though...

    Do animals criticise or judge eachother? Or is it something humans only have learnt to do.

    Most others probably battle it out to see who's stronger.

    Maybe those that rely on social structures do it.
    eg among Ants, "Bobby is such a poor communicator! He's hardly got any spark at all!"

    They definitely judge each other but not for the same reasons we do. They judge on body condition to ascertain whether there is a threat or need to fight. Some judge on colouring and movement for finding a potential mate. Some judge for weakness when hunting.

    Chickens have a pecking order that they sort out among themselves, basically who's the biggest bully.
