Birds are not late? But I thought it was the early bird that gets the worm...

@Johanvb Do we call that a biological clock... the body knows when it usually gets food so the huger comes at that time. So your right.

But to say that animals know the concept of time and know it better then human seems kinda dumb to me:-P

Not only do animals keep time, they are far better at it than humans. My dog doesn`t wear a watch but she manages to be standing next to her food bowl at exactly 5:00pm every day.

"When my wife comes home late for work my cat will walk between his spot near the door and me trying to get my attention around the moment my wife usually comes home."
You have a cat AND wife? Brave soul indeed!

What New_Guy says.
My cat comes to my room and walks all over my keyboard to announce feeding time and always around the same time.
When my wife comes home late for work my cat will walk between his spot near the door and me trying to get my attention around the moment my wife usually comes home. So it knows his daily routine is off somehow.
I do not think my cat sees feeding time as 6 pm but it has a global idea of when certain things ought to happen.

I have been in places where time had little or no meaning. It was alternately liberating and frustrating.

Just no... If the season parameters change the animal behavior changes. That suggest that they react to certain conditions and react. Unless you can document this claim, I`m gonna have to call bull crap on the timekeeping of animals... depending on you definition of timekeeping of course.

My definition of time and the differences between human and animal time concept. Lets take Christmas Eve for instants, 24-25 of December depending on your tradition. Right? Well a bird may or may not hang around for a month more or less in the start of winter depending on the amount of ready food sources available and the temperature (I`m aware those 2 factors are closely related ). Chase and point.

Animals know time a lot better than we do.
Check the migrations, Bird callings, the mass moving of animals in Africa etc, fish moving en masse to feed on plankton, read the books fancy you great tart

On the other hand, we dont suffer the paralysing fear that we might be suddenly set upon and ripped apart by an eagle. Well, not many of us.

No Lando. They say "Oooh light!" and act accordingly, just like every other diurnal animal.

This is total bullpoo. Birds use the rising sun as a "clock" so that they know what "time" it is. So did humans for thousands of years.

It`s pretty easy, actually. You`re unemployed, living at home with parents, no girlfriend or social obligations... you lose track of night and day, days of the week...

Blah blah blah
Birds know when it is time to hunt and time to settle into their nests.
Dogs know when it is time to eat, time to sleep.
And a dog seriously frets when you miss Time for Treat.

this is stupid, it`s not a fear of time running out. It is the realization that there is a time limit which allows us to not waste the time we have. no other species on the planet has that luxury...yes luxury.
