How are they this low, They have equal, not if higher intelligence to what we evolved from & They use skill and strategy to catch their prey. Not just there bone crushing teeth.

42 Snail Snail Snail is a common name that is applied most often to land snails, terrestrial pulmonate gastropod molluscs.


43 Sea Lion
44 Otter Otter Otters are carnivorous mammals in the subfamily Lutrinae. The 13 extant otter species are all semiaquatic, aquatic or marine, with diets based on fish and invertebrates.

Come on guys
Otters aren't as smart as humans or dolphins, but they are much smarter than dogs and cats. They too have their own language as dolphins, and they usually live in clans. They can overpower something as big as a crocodile by forming hordes, and can eat while swimming by using their belly as a table.

They simply one of the smartest animals ever

You know Otters are so so so so CUTE

45 Cockroach

They know how to make us fear like flying toward us or running on our leg!

46 Mockingbird
47 Argentine Ant

They dominate the insect world because they perfectly cooperate with each other. All 700 billion of them. (Compared to only 7 billion of us, in a world filled with violence and war)

48 Raccoon Raccoon The raccoon, sometimes spelled racoon, also known as the common raccoon, North American raccoon, northern raccoon and colloquially as coon, is a medium-sized mammal native to North America.

These should be in the top 10 they can open door knobs, jars and can remember from 2 years back they are also known for remembering their birth and if someone feeds them they can remember exactly where it was.

They are misunderstood. - RaccoonCartoon

49 African Gray Parrot

Their as smart as a six year old!

50 Bat Bat Bats are mammals of the order Chiroptera whose forelimbs form webbed wings, making them the only mammals naturally capable of true and sustained flight.

Very smart. Also my favorite animal. Mix of number 1.

51 Spider
52 Falcons
53 Squid Squid Squid are cephalopods of the order Teuthida, which comprises around 304 species. Like all other cephalopods, squid have a distinct head, bilateral symmetry, a mantle, and arms.
54 Goose

Yes, geese are smart. If you feed them in a certain area, they'll know to go in that area to get fed, much like a cat. They mourn over their deceased partners, and sometimes they act like a dog, haha. - RaccoonCartoon

55 Donkey Donkey

The reasons mules exist in the first place is because horses are sturdy and can be ridden, and donkeys are smart. Mules are both sturdy and smart. People often use ''donkey'' as an insult to a stupid person, but maybe they should do more research before using it like that. - RaccoonCartoon
