After reading through the book, it appears that animals mate purely by selecting mates that will create "direct or indirect benefits" (Coyne 162). This makes animals sound emotionless and heartless, however, there have been evidence that question an animal's capacity for emotion. (see Source) Can animals truely experience emotion? State evidence, theories, or studies. If animals do indeed experience emotions like those we humans experience, what about love? Can animals "love" one another? Examine how socially monogamous animals pick their mates, and how truly monogamous they are, since Coyne does mention the promiscuity of even socially monogamous animals.
