Nature’s IQ

201258 mins

Predator and prey, alike, live precariously perched upon the edge of survival. Each side continuously struggles to gain ground in the never ending cycle of life. Subtle changes in body and behavior can make a huge difference for the continued existence of a species. How and why these changes occur has long been a major debate among scientist, philosophers and theologians.

Two young scholars, Istvan Tasi and Balazs Hornyanszky ask the hard questions about the causes of animals’ mysterious and complicated behavioral patterns. Their initial findings were published in a book titled, Nature’s I.Q.: Extraordinary Animal Behavior. Compelling footage of animals in the wild brings the book’s basic idea to the screen by presenting dozens of behavioral examples. Are you ready to question what you thought, and were taught, to be unshakeable truth?
