Rethinking Thinking: How Intelligent Are Other Animals?

We consider dolphins one of the most intelligent animals. But they are not the only one.
Many years ago, we thought intelligence to be uniquely human. We didn’t consider animals as intelligent creatures.
But that has changed in the past several years thanks to some astonishing cognitive abilities discovered in other species.
And these creatures are not our close cousins like chimps, for example. Instead, we have discovered cognitive abilities in mammals like dolphins, but also in cows, parrots, and even octopuses.
And if you add the intelligence of swarms as well, then you have to consider bees, termites, and ants as super smart creatures.
Just how intelligent are some animals? Take a look.
