Hoerl & McCormack argue that comparative and developmental psychology teaches us that "neither animals nor infants can think and reason about time." We argue that the authors neglect to take into account pivotal evidence from ethology that suggests that non-human animals do possess a capacity to represent and reason about time, namely, work done on Sumatran orangutans' long travel calls.
