Who is the Smartest Animal? (3 cool videos)
Is it an elephant? A dolphin? A squirrel? Or a crow? Watch these 3 videos along with the one on Elephant Painting and you’ll see.
Think Elephants are smart? Try Dolphins
Dolphins are said to have the biggest brains for their size next to humans.
This dolphin has learned to read. Well, sort of. The dolphin has learned to respond to pictures written on a board.
They call it reading. But the dolphin is not reading from printed letters, but rather from pictures showing a dolphin doing various tricks. How is this different from responding to spoken commands?
Next up, on page 2, see how clever squirrels can be, and how well they learn.

Think Dolphins are smart? Try Squirrels (or Maybe Chipmunks)
Youíve probably been in awe of the agility of the squirrel in Mission Impossible by now.
Here is an older video about Squeak who is being taught things he never knew in the wild that enable him to get the food he loves. See how fast he learns. They call him a squirrel in this video, though he looks like a chipmunk to me. In any event, he is pretty clever.
The real winner is the crow on page 3. You’ll be amazed and in awe.

Think Squirrels are Smart? Try Crows
The real answer is a bird, not a mammal. It turns out that dolphins donít have the biggest brains relative to their bodies; crows do.
There have been a lot of studies showing how crows use tools to get what they want. But now crows have moved on in adjusting to modern life.
See what this crow, living in a city in Japan, does when he wants to open a nut that is too hard for him to crack. Are we as clever?
