lol! T.it show at 'Search for son' on related vids. Rarely does youtube allow that.
Whenever one does any activity with complete focus, it becomes meditation or at least with such benefits, as there is a lack of thoughts and feelings during such a state - there's just single-minded concentration.
While an animal is not capable of consciously choosing to be in such a state, it can inadvertently or sub-consciously get into it during various moments of its activities like searching/ hunting, running, mating, soaking in the sun, etc.
Example - a dog sitting on its hind-legs in the sunlight during winters with eyes closed. It's not awake nor is it sleeping. It's not thinking or planning anything. It's very very 'still'. This is that dog's meditative state, which it didn't consciously chose to be in, but which just happened to it while it was conveniently soaking up some sunlight. Same for a tiger at the precise moment of hunting - just look at some of its moves in this video - its focus and focused movements: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXvxCvs9KHc This is one of its meditative states.
Now, because they are not mentally as conscious beings as we are and because of a lack of mental and emotional development in them, they'll after their brief meditative states will ultimately go back to their impulsive instincts, but no doubt they have had their fill of 'spirituality'.
