Who is the Smartest Animal? (3 cool videos)

Think Dolphins are smart? Try Squirrels (or Maybe Chipmunks)

You’ve 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.

Dolphins, hands down. Their communication is beyond human comprehension. And they are beautiful, happy, compassionate animals. Unfortunately, they're being slayed one after another... Sad face.

Wonderful videos, dolphins are such a joy to watch and to be under water with if a dream of mine. I guess it is a toss up between crows and ravines, of which we get quite a few every summer...boy do they fight each other for territory. I love them, but my dog doesn't like being dive bombed by them!!!

All animals are so smart, it makes me sad that people exploit this and keep them in captivity for so called "entertainment" circus and zoo animals suffer so badly.

Dolphins never cease to amaze me.
I love these docile and intelligent animals.
I think the people that torture any animal should have the same done to them.

Cute video, but didn't anyone realize that Squeak is a chipmunk (Tomias striatus) with striped markings on back, not a squirrel (Sciurus) which is a solid color.
