If an animal is sentient, it means it can experience feelings like joy and pain. The Animal Sentience Bill currently only covers animals with backbones. So this might suggest that some animals can feel more than others.
Have a go at the activity below to show what you think about this. Do some animals feel more than others, and if so, which ones?
