Intelligent AnimalsDownloadable Video - 2013
More than 400,000 years ago a certain species of primates started their victory march: it was the victory march of the homo sapiens, the human being. Due to the special abilities of our brains we can produce complicated tools and use them, for example, to fly to the moon. We harnessed fire, developed culture and religion. With their talent for complex organization and communication humans rose above other living beings on this planet. Until recently we assumed that humans are the only intelligent species on our planet but researchers are slowly finding out that this might not be the case. "Intelligent Animals" shows the enormous cognitive, creative and communicative services that animals can perform.
