On human beings, the way we express our emotions is clear from two main aspects – the expression on our faces, which in most cases is really obvious and in our body language, which is an aspect that is not easy to read. Have you ever thought about how these emotions reflect on animals? There is no doubt that animals are capable of a whole gamut of emotions, which while not as complex and deep as humans are still there. In fact, when it comes to the display of emotions, animals are known to be more open, upfront and unpretentious unlike human beings who have learnt to school their expressions.
If one did not have good powers of observation, one would think that the expressions or emotions that animals are capable of would be limited to hunger, alarm and anger. However, the fact is that animals have a good range of emotions and these emotions are more obvious in those animals that are more domesticated. Since these animals are in close proximity to humans, we have more opportunities to observe them and vice versa. This means that we observe more and the animal in question would learn more about sensing emotions from you and soon would be projecting these too.
Animal Showing Joy: Many animals express their joy by their actions, which could include things like prancing around, getting overactive, by moving different body parts, tongues lolling out and also by smiling. Yes, animals like dogs and cats among others have a smile or smirk like expression on their face. These emotions along with the expression in their eyes can be a clear indication of the joyful feelings that the animal has.
Animals Showing Anger: Anger is one of the most basic emotions and this is really easily expressed by the animal in question by the look on their face combined with various expressions using body language. The most common way of expressing an emotion like anger would be the look in the animal’s eyes along with a widening a nostril. Added to this an animal would also growl, lower its head in a bid to jump on the offender. There could be a growl or some other angry sound that would accompany all these actions.
Animals Being Sad: This is again an emotion that an animal would find difficult to hide. It would show in the dullness of the eye, the downward curve of the mouth and the general look of sadness that the animal would project. In most animals, the emotions of grief and anger are the easiest to detect. However, actually most emotions that an animal can feel would be difficult for the animal to hide.
Animal Feeling Excited: An animal who is an excited state either due to extreme joy or extreme sorrow would find it difficult to hide this. Not only the face of the animal but the entire being of the animal would project this emotion and that too in such a way that it would be difficult to miss.
Birds also tend to show emotions but this may not be as obvious as the emotions that our friends from the animal world do. However once you start observing our feathered friends, you would notice that they are also pretty emotional and do tend to show their emotions in many ways. In case of animals like dogs who are known to be man’s best friend, the gamut of emotions tend to be more pronounced and they even show their affection for their masters in an open way. Do tell us what you think about the emotions that animals show.
