Did you know that feelings such as empathy, honesty, cooperation, or a sense of fair treatment aren’t unique to people? It turns out that animals can also be sensitive to moral behaviors.

I sincerely recommend Frans de Waal's TED Talk, it's a really interesting discovery :)

Wow! 

And what do you guys think - does fair treatment require unique treatment for all? And is unique always fair?

I’ve heard that elephants have a very long memory. And they can even take revenge on someone that hurt them!
