Ha...so apes can remember a few numbers and crows can solve small problems. How about taking a look at an animal that's so close to us humans that they can read us like an open book.

Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson does just that:

Some animals are extremely smart, just no where near as smart as humans.


This gorilla was taught basic sign language. They introduced a kitten which the gorilla named 'All Ball'.

What they forgot to mention is that dogs are domesticated animals: they have been bred into human society for many thousands of years.

Those who didn't obey or were not social enough or not interested in us enough were discarded.

They should do the same experiments with more or less tame wolves. Wolves have like 15*% more brainmass than a dog, but I 'll bet they will fail the tests.

Many animals are smarter than people give them credit for.

Just cause not many are smart enough to credit anything other than plastic, but to their credit many are now knowing that credit is where credit is due, the interests are better too ...

The knower and the known are one. Simple people imagine that they should see God, as if He stood there and they here. This is not so. God and I, we are one in knowledge. ~ Eckhart
