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)!
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!
