Monkey In The Mirror Pa based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
The author mentions that humans are not unique in self recognition, and that our closest relative the ape can be taught to recognize themselves in the mirror. Apes are not the only non human species that are capable of recognizing theselves in the mirrors. Dolphins also display this ability. In experiements where marks are made on the stomach of a dolphin, the dolphin will swim over to a mirror in the water and repeatedly turn his stomach to the mirror to view the markings.
