5 Animals with Incredible Memories

  • 2 of 6

 

1.Ravens.

They may not look particularly threatening, but ravens are one animal you really don’t want to annoy. That’s because, amazingly enough, ravens actually remember your face and your voice — and connect it to any prior interactions. The birds actually change their calls based on whether you’re a friend or an enemy —  If you’re the latter, their call will be lower and rougher. Happening upon a stranger raven? Expect an even less friendly call.

Animals are compassionate, intelligent, sentient beings. They're very similar to us; while they still do have their differences. I believe animals are the most effective form of therapy you can ever give someone.

Thanks for sharing this, absolutely fascinating although not overly surprising! Animals have remarkable intelligence that they are sometimes not credited for.

Thank you for this article. I am not surprised, whatever made us think that we are the "cream of the crop"? There is so much intelligence in the universe, not necessarily in the human world

that's exciting about the ravens. They have such personalities. I'm not surprised they can remember.

Agree. Animals are sharper than us!

I get the feeling you don't want to get on the bad side with ANY bird.
