5 Animals with Incredible Memories

 

5. Chimpanzees.

There are many, many ways to demonstrate the intelligence and memory of chimps. but this one has to be the funniest: Chimps actually remember how much (or how little)  members of their troop have groomed them, and dole out their grooming accordingly.

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.
