|Checkout The Top 10 Most Intelligent Animals On Earth ( Number 9 Will Shock U) by sollysms(m): 12:11pm On Apr 27, 2017|
Hello Nairalandianzz, you will discover an amazing and amazing fact about the 10 Most Intelligent Animals whose facts and discoveries will leave you with your jaws dropped.
Chimpanzees and humans are remarkably similar, sharing about 99% of our DNA. Chimpanzees are our closest living relatives, and like humans, live in social communities and can adapt to different environments. They can also learn sign language.
Chimpanzees can walk straight on two legs if they choose, and while they are mostly vegetarians, they consume meat (as well as eggs and insects) occasionally.
Chimpanzees make and use tools, such as stones to open nuts and leaves to absorb drinking water. They reach breeding age at about the same time as humans – 13 for women and 16 for men.
2. Bottlenose dolphins
Bottlenose dolphins are one of the powerful species of the animal kingdom that can use vocal learning to develop their own vocal signature. At the beginning of life, each dolphin creates its own vocal whistle that gives it an individual identity.
Because each whistle is unique, dolphins can get along by imitating the whistle of a dolphin they want to communicate with. This is the equivalent of calling you by name.
Many dolphins establish strong social attachments and will stay with injured or sick members of the group, helping them to the surface of the water so that they can breathe if necessary. There are also dolphin reports that protect human swimmers from sharks by swimming around them or by rushing to shark the sharks.
Dolphins have also been known to team up with humans to catch fish. They drive fish to the shore, where fishermen wait to throw their nets. The dolphins tell the fishermen when it is time to throw their nets, then they snatch the fish that do not do it in the nets.
The brain of elephants is larger than the brain of any other terrestrial animal, and the cortex has as many neurons as a human brain.
The ability of elephants to learn is impressive, and they are also aware – they can actually recognize themselves in mirrors!
In nature, these highly social animals demonstrate their usefulness, compassion and empathy.
Their trunks and feet generate seismic activity that allows them to communicate with each other on a wide variety of subjects.
Elephants are probably the only large terrestrial mammals that communicate with seismic signals.
4. African gray parrots
Known as the Einsteins of the world of parrots, the African Grays are very intelligent. Studies have shown that birds possess abstract and inferential reasoning abilities. They seem to have some understanding of causality and use it to reason about the world. The African Grays also show their intelligence with their counting and vocalizing abilities.
According to Lafeber:
“Most bird watchers believe that only experienced bird enthusiasts must keep a gray, they are complex, sensitive, and more than a little challenging parrots, they are also charming and brilliant, but this combination of sensitivity And brain can lead to behavioral problems They are creatures of habit, and even a small change of routine can make an unhappy gray sensitive.
The ability to think is called metacognition, and a few years ago scientists discovered that rats, like humans, can make decisions based on what they do or do not know.
Studies also show that rats are surprisingly conscious, they are chatty, and they dream like we do. Domestic animal rats are extremely social and form strong bonds with their owners.
They learn their names and come when they are called, and they ask for time to get out of their cage to play and interact with their owners.
The brain of a raven is roughly the size of a human thumb, which is enormous in relation to its body size. This puts their intelligence at the primate level and gives them the ability to solve complex problems.
Scientists have discovered that crows recognize and remember individual human faces. The different areas of a raven’s brain light up when they consider a person perceived as friendly or threatening.
An 8-year-old girl in Seattle, Washington and her mother feed crows visiting their backyards. In return, the crows bring them gifts. The little girl has a carefully cataloged collection of more than 70 jewels that her corpine friends left on her bird food, including earrings and the charm of a “best friend.”
When it comes to canine companions, “intelligent” means different things to different people. Some people think that an obedient dog is smart, while others think a dog with his mind is smarter. Very pleasant dogs are considered to be intelligent according to most human standards.
Humans judge the intelligence of dogs based primarily on the speed with which they learn to obey our commands, their performance and whether they are able to learn human-like objects as objects of identification.

Because dogs have lived in humans for so long and have suffered so much domestication, some scientists believe that they are more like humans than even chimpanzees – and could serve as a model for understanding human social behavior.
Studies show that pigeons are able to learn abstract mathematical rules and in fact are the only ones other than rhesus monkeys with ability. These highly battered birds also have the ability to make extremely intelligent choices and have very advanced pigeon problem solving skills.
Pigeons are also able to recognize individuals, probably by their facial features.
According to some experts, pigs are among the smartest and cleanest pets around – more than cats and dogs. (The reason why pigs roll in the mud is not because they like to be dirty, but because they do not have sweat glands and the mud helps them to refresh).
Researchers who have studied pigs have learned that they have excellent long-term memories, easily solve the labyrinth, can understand simple symbolic language, like to play and play-fight, learn to use a joystick to move A cursor on the screen, and use a mirror to find hidden food.
Octopuses have the biggest brain of any invertebrate. The common octopus has about 130 million neurons in its brain. A human has 100 billion. However, three-fifths of the neurons of an octopus are not in the brain; They are in his arms. Each arm has its own mind, so to speak, and if it is cut off (which the octopus can regrow), will walk and even cling to the food while remaining attached.
