Top Six Most Intelligent Animals in the World

Here are the six animals that are ranked top in intelligence. Did you know that a pig and a squid made the list. Read on to find out more.

1. Chimpanzees (this is inculding other monkeys that are related to this, but a bit different abilities)

Why Chimpanzees to be the top animal? Chimpanzee are the most related to human beings. We are 98.4% same DNA and the rest which is almost 1.6% are a bit different. Like how we are no that hairy, and other difference between us. Mainly how they are the most intelligent out of all animals are that they think like us. They use weapons as us to defend themselves from danger. They throw stones, sticks, spears, etc. They also make medication for themselves to heal from wounds, pain, etc. With plants, animals, and many others! They show emotions to other like how humans get angry they sometimes get in fights for no reasons, and sometimes when we tend to cry because our feelings were ruined, etc. They have conversations when they grunt, scream, hoot, or yell at each other! They can live up to 60 years not as much as we can live up to. That is why the Chimpanzee is one of scientist thought as making the Chimpanzee as the number one animal (for intelligent)!

2. Octopus 

Did you know that an octopus is always staring at you at the aquarium? The zoo did an experiment how octopus are special is how they the ability of “Observational Learning!” This means that when the octopus see someone do something. The octopus copies what the person, or animal is doing. Many innervates don’t have this ability! Octopus can also recognized, and remember what the different shapes, sizes, and brightness of objects are! Other experiments are that, people taught Octopuses to open a soda can!

    This article sounds like it was written by a 5-year old and translated from Chinese by a non-English speaker. But very informative!

    You have an Orca pictured under “Smaller Toothed Whales”. Despite being known as a “Killer Whale”, it is actually a part of the family Delphinidae, and is therefore really a dolphin… the largest species of dolphin in fact.

    This is an interesting article but an almost direct plagiarism of one I read only minutes ago, with the same animals, pictures and information, right down to the examples given. Difference was that the other article that was ripped off so shamelessly was easier to read and understand. Sorry, I had to point out that no research was done here.

    what a terrible excuse of a list, you should be ashamed. The Jamaican Hummingbird has long been reguarded THE most intelligent animal on the planet ! Please research better in future if you wish to publish such articles thankyou.

    v had this notion that besides chimpanzees , monkeys species there may b other animals if not of that having that level of brains there are other genres having little lesser brains what about animals v have read in our stories like cunning fox, jackal dogs etc
    there need to be quote of detailed research findings to prove the authenticity

    systematic detailing need to be mentioned , the article is just ok

    All the articles I read about this seem to vary widely in which animals they list. The lists dominated by primates seem the most credible. I saw one where the dolphin was #2 followed by many primates with the pig coming in at #10. Then I saw the same list with the dolphin at #8. Which one was the altered version? Then there were other lists like this one where other unrelated animals like squid, octopus and various birds were mentioned. So it’s difficult to know which list is credible. I think this is because there is scarcely an objective standard for general intelligence, nor for specific types of intelligence. So the test that suggests that dolphins should be near the top would not make sense or be fair if applied to a bird. Ultimately, there is just the way that we are going to be about the intelligence of various animals including humans.

    I just wonder why a dog isn’t even mentioned!

    My dog is very clever and it shows emotions. Is a pig more intelligent than a dog? No, I can’t believe it.

    We come to a conclusion that we eat intelligent animals… weird.
