Top Ten Smartest AnimalsCaptainComedy17
The Top TenXW
People try to say that we have so many problems therefore we aren't's smart. Not true at all. We are evil. We are manipulative. We are destroying this world.
But if you look at it, the reason we have the ability to do this is because we are smart. There is no denying that. If we weren't smart, we wouldn't be the dominant species on earth. We wouldn't have made so many scientific discoveries, developed so many weapons, and eliminated so many species and ecosystems.
I agree that we have many problems and act stupid in places. But we are smart. A lot of us just use our intelligence in crooked ways. The reason why we are doing so many things wrong isn't because we aren't smart, rather we aren't using our intelligence in the right way. Like why are we developing thousands of nukes when we could instead prevent global warming? Humans are the smartest, but we need to use our intelligence better.
Ways humans are more intelligent than any other animals; Capability to learn mathematics, language, built structures, create working systems of economies. We can make functioning societies with governments. We create innovations every day that further improve their race. The extent of our power to modify the world around us shows how comparatively more meticulous and knowledgeable we are. No other animal has conquered the world quite like humans. I would go even farther to say more importantly, that no other animal has created systems of morality and ethics, developing philosophies based around our advanced enlightened perceptions possessed by no other. - Gamefreak23788
The pinnacle of amazing. Don't say we're evil. We simply do what we need to live on. That is called survival instinct, not malevolence. All species do it.
But we are the greatest life ever. We have built advanced civilization, explored every last inch of this world, and have even landed on the moon! In no way are we evil, and in fact, we have helped more species out of extinction than causing their extinction.
Face it, if humans didn't exist, life as we know it would probably already be dead.
Well. What can I say? There are exceptions. - jerk4lifeV40 Comments
I saw trained dolphins at a reserve once, and an dolphin which was only a year old, and it was trained to do some pretty amazing things, including work with another dolphin to come under my feet and carry me across the pool they were in, try to find a one year old human that can do anything near that!
Did you know that some body taught a dolphin how to count and speak English (Not very well but still.) If dolphins were land animals with and legs, they would make lots of stuff. Billions of new car companies would be around, and humans would have roommates who are not their species. AWESOME!
Dolphins are very clever. They can even paint and the pictures are quite nice. Besides, these animals are so cute :). P.S. THE QUESTION FOR AUTHOR : Who has said you humans are animals? - Wonderful
Dolphins are the one. Don't you know dolphins have a brain 100 times better than a human brain. Anyway, I disagree that humans should be at top. Let me tell you one thing humans, you are killing the dolphins.V25 Comments
It is scientifically proven that these are the smartest animals except for humans! - pryan96
Guys, you do realise that some people might be checking this website for actual data, right? So please stop depriving them of their rightful data and vote scientifically, as this is a scientific question. Chimps should be number 2
Chimpanzees are so much like humans. They wage war, kill each other, eat each other, and commit infanticide!
Its proven by the fact that their psychological studies as to how smart they are. You couldn't call them the smartest because Humans come first if they used their brain's well. - jerk4lifeV5 Comments
DOGS are smart and the reason they are higher than many animals and not closely related to the human like chimps is because they are easy to train. Dogs are the only animals that really show much emotion. You don't see chimps complaining when they are given an apple not a banana.
I reckon dogs are smart but not as smart as dolphins but they can be a persons best friend
DOG IS ONLY HIGH BECAUSE IT IS POPULAR! Chimps and monkeys have been proven to be WAY smarter. Our genes are almost identical.
Yeah they are smart and this list is ordered perfectly in my opinion. Dogs are really smart if well trained. - jerk4lifeV14 Comments
I have raised everything from dogs, cats, parrots, other fowl and even a Capuchin monkey. Let me tell you this.. THAT MONKEY was way smarter than my other animals.. Yes Dogs are good loved pets and yes parrots are definitely smart but that monkey of mine put them all to shame... - shanew
Yes I do love monkeys cuteness and all but to be logical I have seen numerous nature documentaries and dolphins are very smart if you have ever seen a dolphin show you can just look at all the tricks they do!
Dog? Dolphin? Come on people, stop fooling yourself. Monkey is smarter than dog, cat, dolphin, parrot put together and numerous experiments, researches and just real life proved that.
I love dogs, cats and dolphins much more than monkeys but I'm not delusional person - Alexandr
Monkeys are very funny like my broV5 Comments
Parrots should be first. Because humans are not animals. Reading below comment and I can say its true.
Well that's stupid. Parrots can just repeat things. Apes and monkeys should be first because humans aren't actually animals
The most intelligent and smart animal in Earth is Parrot... They are way more more intelligent than Dolphins, Chimpanzees, monkeys and dogs can ever be. Parrots know how to talk not only in their way but in any language you can throw. Can Dogs and dolphins talk? Not even when you put everything to teach them. You can set them any tasks (just like me) and they'll d without any problem. While most animals will be stuck at a random single problem Parrots can do anything which humans are capable of doing. If you can then count them.
I am not saying this ; even the Mighty Holy Quran is saying this...
First of all, humans are the smartest, no debate. Also, dogs, chimps, and dolphins, can intelligently respond to so many more commands than parrots and recognize many more words. All parrots do is repeat sounds they hear - DCnative211V2 Comments
Sure dogs are awesome but theirs one downfall about them. And that's how dumb some of them can be! Cats on the other hand are much more smart. Cats bury their dumps and dogs don't. - DunnaNunnaBatman
Yes, cats are probably the smartest animal on earth, after the primates! Dogs are stupid, clueless, dumb, and the complete opposite of smart. Dogs should die out and go extinct!
Who is the wise professor who said this? THE ELEPHANT is smarter than the cat! Dear administrator can You add to this list the elephant. It is unbelievable it is not here!
I've seen a lot of shows, magazines and articles as to why cats are smart. They're definitely true. - jerk4lifeV16 Comments
Octopuses are the smartest sea creatures. They have huge brains.
The crow is the smartest land creature? Think again, buster.
Wasn't there that study, in which an Octopus learned how to open up a can? - PeachyBlast
I never knew the fact that they're smart until today. - jerk4lifeV2 Comments
I have pet pigs & they are so intelligent. They should definitely be higher! (Especially over cats I think)
Yes. Pigs are actually more intelligent than dogs. Don't say - "Well, I can eat pigs because they're stupid".
They say the pigs are the smartest animals ever
Pigs are very smart. Should be #5V8 Comments
Most of the animals here can't even compare to the intelligence of an elephant. Elephants strike the top spot in all intelligence: cunning, creativity, thinking, & emotion. Few other animals hit all these categories & even fewer, maybe none at all, beat the elephant.
Each year, African Elephants visit a site where their ancestors died. They would memorize the spot and touch their ancestor's skull. Name one other animal that has the intelligence and emotions to do art, swim, and visit their "graveyards" each year.
They have to be on the top 10 but they should be above octopuses for being smart. They are emotional animals and are protective of their loved ones. They are sometimes cunning and can respond intelligently to different situations. - jerk4life
Elephants are so smart that the actually have funerals.V5 Comments
I believe horses are one of the most amazing animals ever. Not only do they have an AMAZING memory, but they can understand signals when are told. They have a connection with humans as unique as a fingerprint. The only reason why they would ever hurt someone or something on purpose is if they were bothering it. Honestly, I think in some ways horses are smarter than humans. If we were so smart then why do we even have an issue with global warming? In my opinion, horses should be at the top of the list.
I am with horses and ride them A LOT. Horses are very smart, and have they are very special. They connect with humans in a way no other animals do. If they really wanted to hurt you they would do it, but they are smart enough to get in harmony with humans. I know that humans outsmart horses, but if you don't count humans I think horses are the smartest in there own way of "talking" to humans and other horses. They actually deside a leader in the herd by who is the smartest and wisest. :) Horses are best
To me, horses are great animals. They're definitely smart. My horse - Sally is brilliant. - jerk4life
Does everyone love horses?V6 Comments
Gorillas are the second most human like animals and if they can talk English they would probably outsmart the humanV1 Comment
The whale one majestic creature how did the blue whale my 3rd favorite animal how did they make such an incredible comeback all whales have gone low in population yet somehow they come back only one species that I know of has gone extinct the grey whale I believe that's thanks to humans again I'm only 10 so I don't know as much as you do maybe but I do know that whales should be higher on the is list
Incredibly intelligent, just like dolphins, only with much more brain capacity.V1 Comment
Crows can remember peoples faces, and when they can't open a nut they put it on a road, wait for a car to drive over it, and break it, then they eat the nut. Crows are genius. - Kekkels
Did you know crows have the brain capacity to use a tool to get a better tool to use to get a better tool to get food?
Crows are the smartest bird in the world! They recognize and remember faces, use cars to crack open nuts, and use tools to solve puzzles!
Crows and Ravens are the smartest creatures for their size, second to humans. So, they should be 2nd place after human. - GHOSTbirdnatureLOVERV3 Comments
Their super smart even in real life not just booksV1 Comment
They can do anything that humans can do apart from speak. - Harri666V1 Comment
Rats are in almost every scientific top 10 about intelligence, so they are really among the most smart animals. Because they are not popular they are low in this list. But scientists know they are way smarter than cats and dogs. Popularity is not a legal reason for intelligence!V4 Comments
