They say true love is defined through a series of chemical reactions in the brain and can only be felt human beings. No matter what words Science uses to define this otherworldly emotion, one cannot help but see that the concept of “true love” does exist even in the Animal Kingdom.
In fact, several animal species like the penguins and the otters practice monogamy, the act of finding one mate for one lifetime. If this does not impress you enough, there had been recorded cases of these animals refusing to pair up with those of their species if their first mate dies. This rather heartwarming demonstration of true love does show that even in the wild recess of the Animal Kingdom, love is truly in the air.
Here are just some of the most concrete examples from our animal friends who might know more about love than us mere humans.
