On this show, Lori ws joined by Dr. Con Slobodchikoff, author of Chasing Dr. Doolittle – Learning the Language of Animals.
Con, who is Professor Emeritus of Biology, Northern Arizona University, has dedicated his career to studying language of Prairie Dogs. He discovered the prairie dog calls contain a tremendous amount of information, constituting not simply communication, but language. Listen in for a wide-ranging discussion about language in non-human animals with a very knowledgeable authority. The show also contains recording of Prairie Dog calls.
