I'm glad jumping spiders made the list. I've read that some species trick web weavers by 'playing' their webs to 'sound' like prey.

Animals are very smart, when it comes to survival ;)

Αν ανάμεσα σ’ όλον τον κόσμο,
νιώθεις πως δεν υπάρχουνε λύσεις,
τότε μόνο δυο μάτια μπορούνε,
να σε κάνουν να θέλεις να ζήσεις.

I knew the crow and rat were smart but the squirrel caught me by surprise they are always getting outsmarted by the chipmunks around here.

I spy with my little eye something that starts with come here and ends with OUCH

I believe it especially Squirrels. I also think they hold a grudge and remember individual people. Living at in a condo near the woods with my friends the squirrels would only throw things at anybody who made them angry. They surprisingly have good aim.

I like learning about rats. I think I watched a show about their intelligence on television some time ago.

I didn't like them at first, but now I think they're very charming creatures.

This should be an interesting read.

The rat pictured in the article looks just like my pet rats :cry:
