Do animals possess the capacity to use numerical information? Is this capacity confined to primates, or indeed to mammals? It is thought that humans inherit a numerical capacity upon which more sophisticated mathematics is built. If this is the case, then we may find signs of this capacity in human infants, but we may also find that some humans are born without this capacity.
