In a study by the H. B. Davis in 1908, raccoons were able to open 11 of 13 complex locks in fewer than 10 tries and had no problems repeating the action.
This was proven in 1914 by Karl von Frisch4 who demonstrated that honey bees, not only see colors, they can learn to simultaneously associate a reward with that color.
Octopuses have a complex nervous system and excellent sight, and are among the most intelligent and behaviourally diverse of all invertebrates.
Have you ever played the memory game? The winner matches the most tiles by best remembering where everything is on the board. Well guess what? If you ever played memory with a pigeon, you’d probably lose and lose hard. A study revealed that pigeon can hold over 700 images in their heads at a time.
Pigs are super smart. They easily navigate mazes, understand emotions, learn sign languages, and even have best friends whom they prefer to spend time with! Believe it or not, baby mud dabblers are smarter than baby humans! Point of fact: piglets master self-awareness faster than infants. Plus, little pigs know their names by two weeks old. It takes a humans a few months
Humans have a 1/40 brain-to-body-size ratio; dolphins have a 1/50 one. What does that mean?Well, it’s complicated. But for our smartest animals on Earth list, , it means dolphins are wicked intelligent.
The Isaac Newtons of Birding World, crows know physics! OK, they may not be proficient in binomial theorems, but they understand how water displacement works, which is a lot more than other animals can do. Crows also plot new flyover paths to avoid trigger-friendly humans that hunt crows during migratory season.
Elephants ran among the largest terrestrial mammals, and they’re also some of the smartest animals on earth! Famously, the pachyderms have incredible memories. Not only can they remember watering holes routes hundreds of kilometers long, but they also recognise each other after years of separation.
