← Gorillas Seen Using "Baby Talk" Gestures—A First

I've watched many adult dogs as they play and tussle with overmatched puppies and noticed many gestures which differ greatly from their gestures with fellow adults. Baby talk might well be a very widespread form of communication and engagement. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that bird vocalizations and movements were altered for chick rearing.
