There’s much we don’t understand about the animal kingdom.

Penguins in Antarctica have been known to walk inland, away from their food source and colony, in what has been described as penguin suicide. Cows do it too. Blue whales are singing in ever-deeper voices every year. The collective intelligence of ants is also hard to explain – they can construct an underground megalopolis that “looks like it was designed by an architect. A single mind.” And let’s not even get started on the frightening behaviour of crows! Honestly, it all gets kinda creepy.

African animals are certainly no different.
