Crows Are Smart Back to Videos / Back Home
Thanks to Mary Lou for sending this one! There was a thing on the MSN home page recently listing the ten smartest animals. It was about the ability to reason or influence. Naturally you had the porpoise, chimps, dogs, squirrels, pigs, cats, and surprisingly the octopus. I guess the octopus is a surprise because we can't ever see them do their thing. The crow also made the list. Shown in this video, a crow first uses a tool (one of the criteria of being "smart"), and when it doesn't work, the crow MODIFIES the tool to make it work better. Watch this - it's amazing.
