Squids are said to be among the brainiest invertebrates in the world.
Their brain structure is different from other invertebrates in the ocean,
as they share complex features similar to the human brain. Like human
beings, squids can be very curious about their environment. They have
the ability to learn new skills and develop the capacity to use tools
that can either help them repress their boredom and protect them
Spiders are among the smallest creatures to possess a proportionately
high level of intelligence. Especially the White Mustached Portia spiders.
These spiders dwell in the African; Asian; and Australian forests and
have demonstrated special learning skills.
Though they are small, they have the ability to creatively withstand
calamities that would wipe out another species. Ants are often seen
coordinating in massive groups to build nests and hunt for food; and
they accommodate to their environment very well.
Baboons are old world monkeys who have cognitive abilities very similar
to chimpanzees and orangutans. In terms of the way they behave,
one can see how these creatures resemble people. Unlike other
animals, studies show that at some level baboons know how to identify
stress and cope with it. They create extremely complex social systems
and can think critically when confronted with difficult situations.
Studies have shown that sea lions possess the ability to think logically
and can actually deduce if a=b and b=c, then a=c.
The intelligence of orangutans is reflected in the way they imitate human
actions. They also have the unique ability to learn complicated new skills,
such as sawing wood or using a hammer and nail to put things together.
Orangutans have the ability to understand their surroundings in a more
abstract way than other animals so they know how to acclimate to some
very harsh environments.
There’s a reason why pigeons have been used numerous times
throughout history on places like battle fields . They are extremely
good at Geo location and studies have shown that they have an
amazing ability to remember people and places throughout the
course of their life.
Along with pigeons, crows are among the most intelligent birds in
the world. They have the ability to solve complicated problems and adapt
to tough situations which can easily be seen in the way they gather
their food and collect resources.
Of all the animals, sheep are believed to possess the most
powerful memories with some research showing them to be better than
humans in certain situations. For example, they have the ability to identify
when a fellow sheep is lost in their flock. Moreover, they exhibit a wide
range of emotions and response to various things going on around
them which also shows a high level of intelligence.
