Abilities that are required for problem solving and reasoning.

Guys, you have got to watch BBC’s Inside the Animal Mind. Absolutely ground-breaking research proving that corvids are capable of all 4 of these abilities (varying depending on species) and even suggest that the New Caledonian Crow have specific tool-making skills that vary depending on the locations of different flocks and that these skills are passed on to the next generation who then refine these techniques.

Animal cognition is such an amazing field of research and the most exciting thing is we’ve hardly even scraped the surface of it!

(Although I wish they had a presenter who didn’t subscribe to dominance theory when it comes to dogs - or expect his own dogs to solve a problem when he didn’t even train them how to manipulate the objects).
