The summer 2013 episode of the Journal of Zoology podcast is now online and you can listen to it here.
In this episode, Neville Pillay talks to us about group living in the African ice rat and how this animal is unusually fickle in its behaviour towards fellow colony members, and we will learn from Fiona Cross what ‘aggressive mimicry’ is and how it could help us better understand the animal mind. Moreover, we will hear from Nicolas Hanuise about how king penguins optimize their diving behaviour for efficient foraging, and Aurore Avarguès-Weber tells us about social learning and how animals obtain useful information from each other even when they are members of different species.
