Bekoff seems to be on to something.

Granted there are a lot of humans-animals that seem to have a hard time with many of those things.

In addition, there is probably some gradation through out the animal kingdom... for example: I expect Wolves have more of those listed things than Komodo Dragons do; wolves display what at least appears to be trust, I'm not confident that Komodo Dragons have any trust other than the trust that a bigger Komodo Dragon is more dangerous than a smaller Komodo Dragon...

Granted I haven't discussed "trust" Komodos... maybe I am making a sweeping generalization about their apparent behavior towards each other...

On the other hand, members of an ant colonies appear to trust each other more than humans do... etc.

Bekoff calls his area of study ethology, or at least it began in ethology with Niko Tinbergen, Konrad Lorenz, and Karl von Frisch.

Lorenz wrote On Agression. Von Frisch wrote Dance Language and Orientation of Bees

Tinbergen, Lorenz, and von Frisch shared a Nobel Prize in 1973.
