Humans love it when animals do things ‘human’. Often times the behaviors are just natural – they happen without any training. Why animals do some rather human-like things is just a mystery. Maybe they are just imitating the behavior, or it could be just a fluke, a one-time event. More often than not, human-like behaviors can be taught.
