Yes. Even a fish has. :) I've watched a fish in an aquarium rubbing it's body against a rock. It's just going back and forth without getting tired. :) I was just laughing watching it. Surprising really!

Yes, they do. However, they cannot smile.

No wonder they are broadcasting it here, I'm watching it sometimes in the morning when I'm not hurrying for university. Stupid but funny :lol:

Well, I'm convinced animlas have quite a wide range of feelings and emotions. My dog doesn't have a lack of impudence, stubbornness and loving care, self-denial - those we ascribe for human beeings mostly. So why not to suppose they have a sense of humour. I'm sure she knows my gestures - when I smile she starts wagging her tail. when she was a puppy she used to bite the buttons off the matrass, I'm convinced she was doing it fo fun. and the way she eats fresh snow has me in stitches!

Many dog owners may prove the fact, dogs grin in such an amusing way when they see the master, the way that you can't observe in commom life

I know that dogs have some muscles of angre. But I am not sure if they have any muscles of smiles.

Once your pet dog's tail wags upon seeing you, you've got to look at its face then you'll see the smile. :)

Dogs have some muscles of sadness and anger. But they don't have any muscles of smile as far as I know.

They said, that the pet acquires the character of the owner. Do you believe in that? :P

Well, it was you who made me torture my doggie! Actually, it is far from what she does when meets us, but it is like that way - the corners of her lips... erm... chaps gather all together. we dogowners call this grin a smile usually, far from hollywood one

When my cat wakes me up with his claws in the morning, I really think he has a sense of humor. Sometimes I think he means to do something get me angry, then he can laugh at my reactions. I think he acts his sense of humor in a different way, but there is no doubt that animals have a sense of humor. I totally agree with that. :lol:

If you had observed a monkey imitates human behavior, you may find out it has something in common with human. When a monkey copies our reactions, it seems try to prove that we will laugh at the reactions. It is similar like how pets entertain their masters.

On this basis, it may be concluded that animals have a sense of humor. When they do something funny, they seem tend to catch our attention.

i have watched many clips on youtube i which animals are doing funny things.but i think these kind of things are funny for us not for them.they are just doing like normal.so i think they have no sense of humour...
