Animal behaviour, pt. 1

Man, I love stories about wildlife exhibiting behaviour that is strangely "human-like". For example, this is one I read recently that made me go "yeah!":

June, 1994. In Wales, a village's local bee-keeper, Margaret Bell, who kept bees for several decades, passed away. After her passing, the town's residents noticed hundreds of bees settled peacefully, on the corner of the street, directly opposite the house where Margaret had lived for twenty six years.

The bees were paying their respects.
