My dog has a hard time telling me when he's in pain, and he tries to go about his business as usual no matter what's wrong with him as if admitting to pain would disappoint the alpha.
Meanwhile other pets I've had would yelp and holler and wail at the slightest twinge of pain, flipping out like the world is ending over something minor. This difference in how animals react to pain has always made me wonder- how do animals experience pain?
As usual there's a TED Talk for that, this one hosted by biologist Robyn J. Crook.
