If you thought that all creatures around us were created without a mind, then perhaps this is a misconception; Especially after some animals and birds have proven their ability to understand, interpret and remember; Which made it among the smartest animals in the world.
This list includes 10 of the smartest animals around, get to know them.
Chimpanzees use tools to obtain nutrients. It also has sophisticated hunting strategies, which require cooperation and influence, chimpanzees have a conscious state, are able to deceive, they can learn to use symbols and understand human language, and are able to plan spontaneously. In 2007, Japanese scientists from Kyoto Japanese University made experiments to test the intelligence of chimpanzees, where the test included remembering the locations of numbers on a computer screen and being able to know the order of their appearance correctly, and the chimpanzees were able to outperform university students in tests of photographic memory by a large difference!
It is known as a mirror of self-recognition, which indicates its self-awareness and perception, and the elephant is characterized by a strong memory that preserves different things and places for many years, and its memory is usually used to reach the places of water in periods of drought, and also has a strong sense of smell that enables it to sense the risks And enemies.
Many researchers classify dolphins as being as good as elephants for “intelligence.” She is known for her involvement in complex theater behavior and has great communication skills. But there are those who believe that dolphins are not of a high level of intelligence. In 2013, experts at the University of the Witwatersrand in South Africa conducted studies that concluded that what is said about the acute intelligence of dolphins is incorrect, and that it is a normal level and does not exceed the level of intelligence of other animals!
Parrots are distinguished by their ability to imitate human speech, but African parrots are able to associate words with their meanings, and form simple sentences.
There are some types of parrot more intelligent such as «Kia»; She is highly skilled at using tools and solving puzzles.
Sheep can recognize individual human faces and remember them for many years. In addition, they can differentiate emotional states through facial characteristics.
Rats show excellent problem-solving skills. Rats also exhibit “altruistic” behavior in other mice, such as releasing them from cages.
Dogs can understand social structure, commitments, and the ability to interact with other dogs. Dogs are known to be very intelligent which facilitates their training by humans. According to a study conducted by experts at the University of British Columbia, it was found that dogs can do some math operations and can discover simple math errors such as 1 + 1 = 4 In addition to that, normal dogs can understand approximately 165 words!
The octopus is considered the smartest invertebrate ever, and in the nineties two Italian researchers conducted an experiment on a group of sermons, to test their intelligence, so they trained them on how to distinguish between a white ball and a red ball, so that if the octopus chose the red ball, they would provide it with an amount of food as a kind of reward, but if He chose the white ball, so he was exposed to a small charge of electricity as a form of punishment, and after Al-Khateeb completed 16 attempts, it reached a stage of maturity, after which you only choose the red ball! Although mammals have the ability to distinguish between things because they have a developed brain like humans, it is strange that the sermons are able to distinguish between different things and they are invertebrates and their brain is simple in structure and consists only of a small ring of neurons around the pharyngeal canal, so it is considered the smartest Invertebrates. It is worth noting that in the 2010 World Cup, Al-Octopus Paul predicted 14 predictions for the results of the World Cup matches, and it is strange that he hit 12 matches, most notably the final between Spain and the Netherlands, in which the first one won 1-0.
There are some types of crows that are able to engage in activities such as sports, use of tools, the ability to hide and store food in seasons, and have the ability to distinguish between humans by recognizing their facial features. The crow lives in groups and swarms. The husband of the ravens remains with each other for a lifetime, and if a strange male approaches the wife of the raven, she strikes him until he turns away from her!
And crows are not afraid of eagles, but rather they approach the eagle when it eats its prey and settle down a little, then start chasing it, so the crows fly and a plane pounces on it, so it is forced to lower its head so that the crow does not hit it with its wing or tail. After several times of that maneuver, the eagle would die and fly, leaving the rest of its prey, and the crows would eat.

Pigeons can study relatively complex procedures, remember large numbers of single images for a long time
