Scientists Found Similarities in Behavior of People, Flying Foxes and Walruses

These animals try to keep their cubs leftward, just like people and other mammals.

      Keeping the baby on the left hand is typical for all mammals, and not only humans. This conclusion was made by scientists from the St. Petersburg State University, based on the observation of the behavior of Pacific walruses and Indian flying foxes.

      It turned out that the babies of these species prefer to look at the mother mainly with the left eye. The information from it is naturally processed by the right hemisphere, which is involved in the recognition of socially significant images. The same can be said about other mammals, scientists assume.

      Scientists note that babies that lie leftward of their parents are much less nervous than on the right side, and the "right-hand" kids are comparatively less capable of recognizing faces as they grow up.
